Tembo, Tembo Stool

03/28/2012

Swedish design group Note Design Studio has created a great collection of seating, lighting and storage pieces. The Tembo stool (Swahili for elephant) is styled after the large pad like feet of the elephant and uses cork as the cushion.

Tembo is Swahili for elephant. When elephants walk, they always have at least one foot on the ground. They don’t run. Because of their straight legs and large pad-like feet elephants can stand for very long periods of time without getting tired. Just like our Tembo table and stool. They are part of our collection Marginal Notes #1, still in development and yet without a producer.
