Maya Lin 1st-Generation Concrete Stool for Knoll Studio, Stamped 1998Automaton Vintage Furnishings
This first generation Maya Lin stool is fabricated of molded concrete, unlike the polyethylene (plastic) modern versions of today, and is stamped at the bottom. These original early production examples are no longer in production and are much higher quality and worth than the current plastic versions offered by Knoll. Rare and sought after - this example is in natural sand (tan) color that is the most desirable of the colors that were offered.
Introduced in 1998 in celebration of Knoll's 60th anniversary, Maya Lin's collection of "Stones" reflect the famed architect's signature subtlety. Known for her sense of simple, elegant beauty with clear inspirations from nature, this concrete stool is a testament of that conception which can be used indoors or outdoors.
This versatile, functional piece would be a great addition as part of a classic, contemporary or Mid-Century Modern living room, den, family room, office, covered patio, porch or veranda It would also be an apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
