Mysterious and mesmerizing, Handmade Industrials' Impose Flock Monkey Stool (2019) craves attention and tries to subordinate the environment it inhabits. It wants to be loved and feels most comfortable in indoor spaces.
Made of balloon-molded EPS, PU leather, and velvet flocking, this stool measures 45 x 45 x 46 cm. The magenta version of this design is available as a limited edition of 3.
