A Curved Perch
by Tom Moser
Until 500 years ago, most humans sat on the ground or a simple stump of some sort. Chairs, particularly those that elevate the sitter, were reserved for nobility. Even today, with the human race now some seven billion strong, many people lack much in the way of seating. American families, on the other hand, own numerous chairs — I venture to say upwards of 30 in the average household including car seats, bicycle seats, dining chairs, lounge chairs, outdoor seating and, especially in the modern era, kitchen stools.
Our latest contribution is the versatile
Crescent High Stool
, which we hope to add to your collection. The ash legs taper to a slender terminus, attached to the seat with our signature through tenon, and offer a color contrast to the darker cherry or walnut seat. The seat itself is steam bent to fit the curvature of the human derriere. The shape of the seat is derived from a stiff sling on a child’s swing, with a radius that is scaled to offer comfort to a broad population of sitters in the kitchen, den, studio, bar, billiard room — wherever an elevated perch is required.
At Thos. Moser, we subscribe to the notion that beauty is at the core of any object that performs its task to perfection. And the Crescent High Stool — an exercise in simplicity, minimalism and function — is living proof.
