Tractor Stool

Design Within Reach

Craig Bassam was working on a project in Switzerland when he found a tractor seat on the side of the road. He was impressed by how the seat allowed him to sit in an upright, ergonomic position without the aid of a chair back, but unlike the metal seat that he found, he wanted to create this type of seat in wood. Bassam's Tractor Stool (2000/2001) is carved out of a massive block of sustainably and locally harvested walnut or ash, the quality of which is in the top 10% of top-grade woods. No > MORE stains are ever used, and because of the natural variations in wood, every Tractor Stool is unique. The stools are hand finished with a wipe-on oil and sealer product; by not using spray booths, BassamFellows maintains a healthy work environment for its artisans. Scratches that come with normal use will create a warm, inviting patina on these stools over time. They are used in diverse settings worldwide, from the W Hotel in South Beach to the Herman MillerĀ® showroom in New York to Le Royal Monceau hotel in Paris. Made in U.S.A. ^ LESS
