simon hasan has developed a set of leather stools with a cast aluminium frame
hasan has been selected as one of the four designers in residence, an annual program hosted by the design museum which seeks to further the careers of emerging young designers. he has used this opportunity to continue developing his interest in crafts and mass-production by prototyping a leather stool designed for volume manufacturing. in order to do so, hasan has developed his leather-hardening process to create a deeply drawn seat which is intended for everyday use. the formed leather seat is suspended on a cast-aluminium frame, which sits upon extruded aluminium legs electroplated in brass or black nickel. the seating object is the first in a range of self-produced furniture for retail.
