The Biennale stool was made for the Architectural Biennale of Venice in 2014, and is a luxurious piece of solid wood design. Weighing upwards of 40 kilograms, the Nikari Arte Biennale Stool is a true statement piece, and can serve a number of purposes. Primarily, it's a stool, but it also carries a secondary function as a side table. alternatively one might simply see it as an effective art object that will inspire conversations and discourse for years to come. The Nikari Arte Biennale Stool forms part of Nikari's Arte family of goods.
