What benefit does a four-legged seating object have over something like this cedar wood stool? The fact of the matter is that a great deal of energy and material are wasted in the manufacturing of turned vertical supports and perfectly shaped surfaces. So why don't we instead work with what nature gives us?

Vito Nesta's beautifully organic Noce Stool for Riva 1920 is made from a solid section of a tree. It appears to have been hacked reasonably roughly, yet the finished piece has been sanded down smoothly to offer a comfortable seat. You don't have to look too closely to notice the soft wood grain texture, or to discern the natural cracking of the trunk. And even with all of its unrefined features, this cedar wood stool exudes an elegance that's suitable for all sorts of interior spaces.
