As part of the project for SKOLA, we were commissioned to design a bespoke family of timber furniture for the café. Taking reference from a simple three legged stool from the Soviet era, the taburet. The taburet was a common and ubiquitous piece of Soviet furniture that was used in homes, cafes, restaurants, factories and offices as a simple, affordable seat. Our family of chairs, benches, stools and tables were based on this simple, repeatable design.

The oak for the furniture was sourced from Dagestan and the peices were made in a series of local workshops in Tbilisi.
