Description

Vaarnii’s Ast stool, designed by Dimitri Bähler, is characterized by an unpretentious design that combines the rustic with the modern. The simple and robust stool consists of thick, sturdy pieces of pinewood, its only decorations being the gently rounded edges and the knots and lively grain typical of pine. The name of the stool, Ast, is German and means “branch”, alluding to the knots that underline the strong yet often overlooked material. In addition to an extra seat, Ast can be used as a nightstand or side table.

Notes
Pine is a soft wood and will suffer some dents and scratches over time, which should be embraced and enjoyed as characterful signs of aging. Pine will naturally change color as it ages with your pale piece of furniture gradually maturing to a beautiful honey color over the course of several years.
Care instructions
Use a microfiber cloth when dusting Vaarnii products. Do not use any solvents on wood, only water is recommended.
