Design Christian AstuguevieilleAFR 1119
- Subtly invoking the shape of an African mask, this inviting stool flips the usual, expected proportions and offers more weight at its top.
- The fascinating curvilinear pattern of the woven rope can be created with natural hemp rope or painted cotton, for a look that matches a room’s mood.
- The Afrital Stool is part of Christian Astuguevieille’s Collection Afrique, a selection of pieces inspired by Africa’s vibrant culture and spirit.
A cultural collector, Christian Astuguevieille creates designs inspired by the diverse influences he curates from different eras, geographies and civilizations, both historical and imagined. A highly sensual artist, Astuguevieille’s work – jewelry, perfume, objects, textiles, rugs, furniture – carries an alluring air of mystery. The tactile textures and patina featured in his pieces provide a beautiful counterpoint to signature HOLLY HUNT clean, contemporary designs. His playful work naturally invites people to see spaces and objects in new ways.
