Mr T – 2017 (NYCxDESIGN award Winner)
By investigating fonts and exploring different letters, duverellGIERTZ found inspiration for their latest furniture project which is based on a basic shape which creates an archetypal seating furniture.
Mr. T is a graphic and minimalistic stool, having a sharp shape with soft edges. The vertical tube meets the horizontal and creates a meeting where the stitching is an important detail. The stylistic expression is the essence of the stool, where the rounded forms stands for openness and encourage a creative seating. During the process, they have purified and scaled down the idea until only the basic shape remains, the sculptural and naked one.
