Senta

Designed by Fernando Brízio.

Senta

Senta is a contradiction on 4 legs: the possibility to sit down while on the move, to harmonize your nomadic and contemplative instincts.

A fool-proof, pack & carry stool you can assemble and use anywhere, Senta fits 4 wooden legs into a cork seat that is both sturdy and flexible, making for a comfortable sitting spot. Cut into the cork body, two oval-shaped openings attest to its on-the-go potential: with no assigned spot in the house, it can smoothly fit an extra person at the dinner table or give you those extra inches to reach a tall kitchen cabinet.
