These Taper stools by Australian-based furniture designer Felicity Dessewffy were recently shown at the London Design Festival's 100% Design show.  The elegant, sculptural forms encourage people to touch their tactile surfaces while the combination of steel and timber pieces explores the tapered profile and the impact of the material on this form as well as highlighting the structural and aesthetic properties of each material thereby reinforcing their similarities and differences.

The first pieces in the collection are the Taper Bar and Low stools (pictured above) in combinations of steel and timber. The Taper collection will eventually expand to include chairs and tables for both indoor and outdoor settings.
