The TamboRem Vintage Rowing Stool Adopts Scull Seats for Passive Repose

The person who once sat upon the seat of a TamboRem Vintage Rowing Stool was not as relaxed as the contemporary sitter would be on this modern adaptation. This collection of minimalist barstools for EcoLuxury Editions has appropriated the tracked perches found in rowboats from the 1960s.

In order to showcase the iconic and ergonomic beauty of the antique sporting equipment components, Andreu Carulla fashioned the tall chairs from frames of extremely slender tubular metal. Their minimalist silhouettes guide the eyes up towards the sculpted wooden seats, where one's attention is designed to be focused.

A finish of gold, silver or bronze coats the supportive structure of each TamboRem Vintage Rowing Stool to reference the competitive connotations of the showcased artifacts. In the absence of genuine benches, the designer hand makes them by the original method, using authentic molds and protective glazes.
