Sharing a common interest in the idea of mindful living, Noidoi and Visibility set out to design an object that inspired a more thoughtful approach to everyday life. Where they landed was BUE, a stool initially inspired by a 1940s Swiss prayer knee-rest; an object solely characterized by its emphasis on mindfulness. Through a continuous dialogue, the form was refined and the stool’s characteristics began to take shape- namely a linear wooden frame and a channeled upholstered seat, which take great care to produce but emanate a familiar simplicity.
More than its physical value, it refers to the process of understanding each other as design studios through creating a common ground where new ideas can evolve.
The product is hand made in Norway and both the wood and the wool used in the construction of the stool, are locally sourced.
