Kastella launches the C401 stool

Kastella is proud to announce the launch of the C401 stool, the first in the collection by the Montreal-based manufacturer and distributor of premium wood furniture. The concept underlying the C401 is the product of ten years of research and development invested by this innovative firm. The result is a highly elegant stool that seems to be made of a single piece of wood. Its simple geometry brings to mind the clean sensual lines of Danish design, making this a landmark piece for the contemporary kitchen. The nearly semi-spherical shape of the seat and the seamless transition with the legs assure an even weight distribution and solid construction. The machined brass footrest guarantees the comfort and balance essential to a bar stool. The C401 emphasizes the unique character of solid wood.

In order to minimize the environmental impact of wood harvest and transportation, the company sources its raw materials from FSC forests in nearby regions, specifically the American Northeast and Midwest as well as Canada. Consistent with that approach, all items are manufactured in Montreal. The company’s various suppliers (hardware, upholstery, finishing, etc.) are also local.
