These one-of-a-kind stone stools demonstrate what structural and aesthetic potential lie within the realm of designing fairly simple seating objects. Sculpture meets utility in these limited edition pieces by by Greece is For Lovers, providing the user with a natural surface for a seat and an industrial-strength frame beneath it.

Large Aegean marble pebbles have been sourced for this project, discovered in bleached shades that are reminiscent of whitewashed Greek architecture. Complementing this quite fittingly is a coating of blue paint on the metal tripod, completing a two-tone look that matches the multi-island-nation's flag.

Organic ergonomics and manufactured modifiability were considered together to create a threaded screw-style seat post that enables the height of the stone stool to be adjusted. Entitled the Harder They Come, these three rock-topped chairs are perfect accents for virtually any interior space.
