Some furniture is designed to be beautiful, other to be used endlessly. The Saddle Stool combines both of these fundamentals. The more you use it, the more characterful the object becomes. Like the original saddle from Brooks the Saddle Stool is made from compressed leather. The flexible material molds around your body and together with the ingenious spring system the stool provides optimum comfort.

Design By:  Sjoerd Vroonland, Klaas Kuiken en Yvette Jacobs.

The collection Vroonland is reminiscent of authentic design treasures – it reflects both what they used to be and what they still are today. The innovative designs are inspired by classic compositions from design history and are created using the materials, techniques and forms that we all know. From the archetypal saddle to the antique clothespin, Vroonland uses the best features of time-honoured design and finds new ways to apply them.

The strength of the products from Vroonland lies in the encounter between materials. Between framework and lampshade, between table and leg, the materials are uncompromised and the line of work can be clearly seen. Instead of hiding all the technical detailing, the designer focuses on the beauty of structure. The result is as sober as it is poetic and makes the furniture even more engaging.

Sjoerd Vroonland creates dialogs between legacy craft, high-tech innovation and modern day living. He always thinks on two fronts: sincere construction and sensorial experience. Using form language to show simply how a piece is made. While at the same time engaging all the senses by applying generous loving attention to detail in shape, material and touch.
