WW Bar Stool - Black leather
The two Ws in the WW barstool’s name stand for Windsor and Wire, which allude to its form and materials. It’s a hybrid piece, which gives a contemporary twist to a traditional design language.
The legs and seat are inspired by the classic lines of a Windsor barstool, with the surface of the seat slightly carved for comfort. Shafts of 6mm powder coating metal wire extend upwards from below the seat. They fan slightly outwards from their point of origin before meeting the wooden backrest. This gives the Barstool a sculptural quality and sense of lightness. The playful juxtaposition of materials is typical of its designer, Alejandro Villarreal.
He is also founder and principal of Hierve, an award winning multidisciplinary design consultancy based in Mexico City and London, with more than 21 years of professional design experience.
Alejandro is the Founder, Creative Director and main Designer of the company. He holds a BA in Architecture from Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City and a Postgraduate degree in Product Design from the Royal College of Art, London.
