T for TUBE is a collection of one hundred twenty stools based on the rotating element of the turnstile from the Paris and Hong Kong subways (manufactured by Klein Access Design in France) These elements have been kept in their original condition, and have simply been cleaned and fixed, each bearing the marks of use.
The seat is designed in two parts: the base, handmade in poplar plywood, sanded and treated with a natural patina is available in wood finish or microfiber. The top is stuffed with foam and horsehair and is finished in a wool fabric. A mechanical aluminium seal ensures the rotation of the seat.
