Moxo Stool

NewImageI just can't get enough of this paired down simple modern craftsman aesthetic lately.  The Moxo Stool is a simple Ipe stool made in Brazil. It's part of the Caboclas Project, which in and of itself is pretty cool.

The Caboclas Project is an innovative forest management project launched in 2000 with the support of leading Brazilian environmental agencies.  It allows members to remain in their communities by providing an alternative income source through traditional woodworking while employing sustainable practices.  Comprised of nearly 300 families, artisan members work in communal areas with simple hand tools.  Their furniture and other handcrafted wood pieces reflect the rich folk culture and traditions of communities in the Tapajós region.  The group's popular animal carvings illustrate these influences.  The group uses wood from managed forests as well as reclaimed and dead trees.

Moxo Stool $100
