Seto Stool combines past and present designs

At first glance, the solid oak and canvas stool is a simple design focusing on appearance and material. Still, a closer look reveals that a great deal of care and thought has gone into the design, drawing from historical references and knowledge of the craft. The name Seto refers to the architectural and engineering masterpiece Seto Ōhashi, Japan's longest bridge connecting the main islands of Honshu and Shikoku. The bridge's graceful profile is evident in Takeuchi's stool with its distinctive H-structure, creating a refined and contemporary design.

Takeuchi’s approach was to combine past and present designs to capture the unique design universe he perceives at Fredericia. The idea behind Seto is to transfer the mood and design language from two of Børge Mogensen's iconic creations, The Spanish Chair and Canvas Chair, which Takeuchi considers unique masterpieces and an integral part of the essence of Fredericia. The Seto Stool brings this design narrative into a contemporary context with flexibility that caters to the needs of many smaller homes and the growing demand for versatility in our furniture.
