The Stool by Vladislav Zhukovets, a designer based in Togliatti, Russia, has a beautiful organic aesthetic that has been tempered slightly by its painted perimeter and legs. Made out of a small tree trunk, the seat itself retains the wood's original shape. By not painting the top surface, the stool allows the warms of the wood to live on even though no additional rings will be added to it ever again.
Taking first place in the Perm furniture competition, the Stool by Vladislav Zhukovets is admirable in both look and construction. Although a relatively simple and minimalist design, it pays a tribute to nature in a touching way. It is also perfect for traditional and contemporary homes.
