In May and June 2016 I collaborated with Philipp von Hase, a furniture designer and maker based in Bergen, Norway. Together, we created Omera, a wooden stackable stool. Its shape follows natural forms and we made the prototypes in reclaimed mahogany and local oak wood. These two wood species offer a nice contrast between the seat and the legs, which are wedged which round metal wedges.
In March 2018, we made a set of 18 Omera stools in France using local walnut for the seats and maple wood for the legs.
It is designed for CNC production but it can also be made on a woodturning lathe.
