"The Stonehenge Stool was inspired by ancient, small stools found across different cultures in multitude of designs, most often conceived by the maker. These tactile objects have an intrinsic appeal probably because they provide a gateway to the maker's hands and soul."
The Palombas also point out, rightly I think, that the stool could equally be assumed to come from Africa, Japan or the West.
Though it was designed in lockdown, the Stongehenge Stool is no self-directed one-off; it's in production by European furniture brand Zanat.
