Once upon a time, in the Victorian time to be more precise, there was a world-famous lion tamer who traveled all over Europe to show his skills to the people around. His name was Isaac van Amburg and he is the source of inspiration for this stool. I mean he was the one the designer thought about when he created it. And I think I know why: it looks just like the stool they use at the circus when they want to show the audience some tamed animals or some stunt: the round or pentagonal or even heptagonal base stool with some irregularities on the sides, something resembling triangles.
Since Van Amburgh Stool is big enough you can use it as a stool and even as a side table. You can place it in the living room and on the terrace, too and even in the garden because it is made of rotation-moulded polypreopylene, so it is pretty resistant and weather-proof. Designed by Sam Johnson, this stool can be easily stacked – one on top of each other for saving space. It is available now for 79 pounds.
