French multi-disciplinary artisanal studio Milton Priest launched this interesting sculpture/stool called the Twonky. A powder-coated, steel framed bike stool featuring a Brooks B67 leather saddle with copper springs. A funny concept, more visual than useful to take with humour that you can buy for $1000 (950 Euro)
Milton Priest is an artisanal design & manufacturing studio located in northern France. They produce handmade furniture & objets d’art, utilizing both traditional and contemporary processes.
The furniture they create has its origins in utilitarian / industrial design, which they admire for its aesthetic integrity born out of absolute necessity. The form of our furniture is less concerned with visual harmony and formal balance, placing instead an emphasis on ‘aesthetic integrity’ through the empirical enquiry of everyday objects and their surroundings. The pieces take on a narrative, personified by the subjects they reference, imbuing them with honesty and, at times, humour.
