This tabouret was inspired, as its name suggests, by a stool for shepherds. It was presented for the first time in Tokyo during the Synthèse des arts exhibition in 1955. It is created entirely out of wood in three finishes – Canaletto walnut, natural oak and black-stained oak. It distinguishes itself by its elegant turned legs.
Her great passion for the mountains is clear in two models that Cassina has revisited for the first time. The “Tabouret Méribel” and the “Tabouret Berger” both offer an elegant stylization of the traditional milking stool, a synthesis of a traditional model and universal form, deliberately less “rustic” and ideal for a contemporary home.
The tabourets, available in two different heights and three different essences of wood, can be used individually, in a group or also as small tables, enabling the creation of lively and dynamic arrangements. The art de vivre according to Charlotte Perriand is, above all else, about freedom of expression and movement.
This view of life and design is quite apparent in the “Table en forme libre” series from which Cassina presents a new edition. With its rounded and asymmetrical form, this tables is suitable for even the smallest spaces and as it is free of rough edges, it can comfortably seat more people. The plasticity of its form enhances the allure of the wood, evident in all its natural beauty, as if it were eroded by the wind and water.
