Nido Stool by Eva Marguerre

It’s called the Nido and it’s designed by one Eva Marguerre. It’s meant to look fragile, it’s built to be tough. And at 900 grams, Marguerre’s claim of “light as a feather” isn’t far off. These seats are constructed of fiberglass drenched in resin. Marguerre developed a production procedure that connects and wraps each of the fibers in different ways.

Starting with the basic model, each stool evolved “to playfully contrast the flexibility of the original makes the stools weatherproof as well as fade resistant, making them ideal for sitting right on the balcony or in the garden.
