“Cheeky” stools reconcile humour with functional design in pursuit of creating playful, engaging and amusing user experiences. A sense of humour promotes wellbeing and human connection, and while Cheeky attempts to awaken playfulness, it simultaneously promotes a space of inclusivity and unity through its representation of various “skin colours” which make up the collection. Cheeky features a removable, upholstered cushion and powder coated aluminium frame, allowing the ability to re-upholster and re-powdercoat for repair or colour change. The cushion-less Cheeky is multi-functional and suitable for outdoor environments.
A comfortable stool, a universally funny ice-breaker, a compelling social comment; Cheeky evokes an array of emotional responses essential in fostering meaningful and memorable interactions.
