Chess stools by Giorgio Bonaguro for Icons Furniture

October 25th, 2013 by retail design blog

Alfiere, Regina and Pedone stools This family of stools, designed by Giorgio Bonaguro for Icons Furniture, want to give a playful interpretation to this kind of furniture. Starting from Alfiere ( the “Bishop” in italian) which is a stool in solid wood: it features a geometric form, interrupted by a large diagonal cut which acts as a magazine rack; next to it is “moving” Regina (the “Queen”),with a more “aristocratic” and imposing shape, and Pedone (the “Pawn”),a rounded and simple stool.

These products have been designed taking inspiration by chess, as the name suggests; they want to enphatize shapes and characteristics of the chess pieces (especially the heads) that re
used in this game. The stools are produced by Icons in solid scented cedarwood with semi-artisanal techniques and processes, enhancing the value and finishes.
