Submitted this morning, the minimalist Sidekick stool has been designed by New Zealand furniture designer Timothy John.
The Sidekick is visually light, unimposing and is easily in- corporated into any space. It is inspired by the silhouette of a glass science beaker, resembling a 3D line drawing of its form.
As the contents of an old school beaker were contained with a cork stopper, so too the stool top is made of cork. Cork is a natural product that intrigues the senses. It is warm, smooth, velvety to touch and earthy to smell. It is also is impermeable, buoyant, non-allergenic and fire resistant.
The Sidekick was released on Friday November 23rd in limited numbers. It will be available in salt & pepper (black & white colourways) exclusively from Thanks stores.
