Pioneer Stool - Zero 0001 / Oak Lacquered

Model 6830 - By Maria Bruun


Pioneer Stool

The sculptural Pioneer stools combine good seating comfort, functionality and a sculptural design language that elegantly combines the seat’s soft and round design with the wooden frame’s sensuality. The four vertical legs of the wooden frame are united in a cross composition with elegant indentations, where the light, upholstered seat cushion, is placed on top. In contrast, the detailed indentation on the underside completes the overall artistic impression. The stool’s simple, unique and distinctive combination of shapes and materials is a modern take on Scandinavian design that combines functionality with Bruun’s recognisable sculptural minimalism.

Meet the designer

Danish designer Maria Bruun creates unique experiences in form and space. Much like a set designer, early in her creative process she visualises her ideas in a spatial context in relation to its surroundings. An approach that contributes to her carefully considered, sculptural designs that are a pleasure to both use and behold.

An artistic object turning into functional design

Created by the need for beautiful objects and meaningful materials during the pandemic, Bruun worked on the CONNECTED project, where nine international designers were challenged to create a table and chair fitting our new ways of living and working from home.

Inspired by Bruun’s own experiences from the period, the small collection Nordic Pioneer was born, including a stackable stool with a solid maple seat exhibited as part of the project at the Design Museum in London. Drawn by the poetic wooden object, Bruun and Fredericia further developed the piece into a usable stool with an upholstered seat, transforming the artistic idea into a functional piece of furniture.
