New Zealand design studio Timothy John has created the “Sidekick Stool” for Thanks, an online fashion retailer. Reminiscent of an old school science beaker, the Sidekick stool base resembles a line drawing that captures that familiar form, lightness and transparency. While it occupies physical space it remains visually unimposing. As the contents of the beaker were traditionally contained with a cork stopper, a hand turned cork top completes the stool, following a powder coated steel base line resulting in a continuous, uninterrupted silhouette.
