PEBBLE STOOL AND LOUNGE COLLECTION

The BassamFellows Pebble Collection was inspired by a single simple pebble. Architect, Craig Bassam found himself returning again and again to a small, pleasingly shaped pebble he had picked up while walking on the beach on Cape Cod. It had been sitting on his desk for some time and served as a kind of organic stress ball – something tactile and pleasing to turn around in his hand, but also to inspire visually, like a kind of incidental, miniature Henry Moore.

The Pebble Collection was conceived as a set of furniture that would look organic and harmonious, sculptural and natural – from any angle, allowing for different groupings without the need to be rigorously aligned. Each of the pieces in the collection work as an abstract design statement in itself, but they also work together to form an integrated whole.

The Pebble Stool looks like one of the simplest pieces in the set, but was one of the most complex to develop. It comes in a plain wood and an upholstered version, Pebble Padded. Numerous prototypes were worked on, with incremental changes to the sculptural shape to create optimum comfort, while Pebble Padded went through numerous changes in the upholstery detailing with as few seams as possible. Rounding out the series is the Pebble Lounge Armchair, an ample, fully carved all wood lounge chair.
