Mismatched Color Seating

Stool 60 by Artek is Re-Released to Celebrate 80th Anniversary

— January 23, 2013 — Art & Design
The Stool 60 is celebrating its 80th anniversary. A momentous occasion, it was only appropriate that the manufacturer, Artek, behind the seat re-released it. Of course, there have been some contemporary tweaks, namely in the form of color. Using the palette of the Aalto’s architectural designs at the time it was first created, the Stool 60 boasts tops in hues such as bright yellows (floors), deep greens (walls) and muted turquoise (handrails and walls).

Designed by Aalto, the Stool 60 will also receive a makeover from select architects and designers for a special edition run. These will include playfully painted bases in addition to the tops. Simple and stackable thanks to its three-legged form, the Stool 60 will suit just about any home, both traditional and modern.
Trend Themes
1. Colorful Seating - Manufacturers can explore adding playful and bright colors to create renewed interest in classic designs like the Stool 60.
2. Collaborative Design - Creating special editions with designers and architects can generate excitement and add value to an existing product.
3. Stackable Furniture - There is potential for innovation in creating more stackable and easily storable furniture pieces.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture Manufacturing - Furniture manufacturers can explore adding colorful designs and collaborating with designers to create special collections, thus attracting and retaining more customers.
2. Home Decor - Home decor stores can capitalize on the trend of mismatched color seating by offering complementary accents and decor pieces that match the colorful tops of the Stool 60.
3. Interior Design - Interior designers can use the unique color palettes of the Stool 60 as inspiration when designing spaces for clients.
