Genot Stool – Low (Upholstered in Kvadrat Arda over Purple Heart Leg) is one version of the debut product group by local artisan maker, Dane Sampson of Genot Furniture. Each piece being a testament to Danes 20+ years mastering his craft, initially completing his apprenticeship as an antique furniture restorer and high-end bespoke furniture maker, to then having the rare opportunity to be part of the team who finished building the St.Johns Cathedral in Brisbane, Queensland. Danes amalgamation of artisanal experience and a passion for timber colour, structure and the workability of organic materials pushed Dane to embark on his own Journey, starting his own studio practice, Genot Furniture, towards the start of 2022. Stool G, or the “Genot Stool” marks Danes next chapter – a physical reflection of his ability as a master craftsmen and his intention to create contemporary design with a story.
Each stool is hand turned and finished straight off the tool with very minimal sanding required. This results in an incredibly flat, high resolution timber grain pattern only achievable with a certain knowledge for sharpening and blade care. The tops on this particular version are upholstered in Kvadrat Arda, supported by stepped round tenon legs in Purple Heart timber. For finishing, no power is used, only basic hand tools and a combination of hard wax and tung oil, leaving the surface semi-gloss and safe for kids and in spaces where food is served.
This version of the Genot stool can be ordered in various timber and fabric options, all with their own price point. Lead time is generally 4-6 weeks unless stock is available in store or based on quantity and fabric lead times. For custom quotes, please make an enquiry.
