Concept

Bolt is maybe the most iconic stool of the collection. Its unique silhouette is highly recognizable with his 4 solid logs elegantly held by a contrasting metal ring. Bolt is a paradoxe: brutal and very refined at the same time. The stool is also surprisingly comfortable while at first many consider it only as decorative piece. It is much more than that, it a sculpture for daily use. Bolt was originally part of the 'Marginal notes' exhibition held by Note design studio collective as a creative stunt in 2010. The concept of the exhibition was to produce in real life the doodles and ‘marginal notes’ that the members of the creative collective had in their notebooks, however crazy they might be. The ‘BOLT’ presented in the exhibition was really 4 logs held together by a metal ring. It was not possible to seat on it and even the members of Note were skeptical about the possibility to make it a practical piece. After numerous prototypes, La Chance artisans and Note design studio managed to create the final design of one of the signature pieces of the brand and won the prestigious Wallpaper design award the year following its release.
