INSPIRATION:
‘Inspiration came through research into the uses of stool, mostly bars happy hours, moments of socializing and escape from everyday life. In French Echape means escape, but also is a position in ballet. We have decided to combine the ethereal grace and lightness of a ballet dancer with the joy and happiness of a casual meeting at a bar between friends and acquaintances.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Contemporary stools with high aesthetic, sculptural and tactile value.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We wanted to give the stool a touch of elegance, grace, mystery and interest, to give a talking point for strangers to help break the ice.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in January 2014 in Barcelona with the initial research into uses needs and necessities of stool in the modern environment. A few months later “Echappé “ was born.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
