Clothilde is both a container and a stool. The design comes from Christian Steiner, with whom schmidinger möbelbau has a long-standing collaboration. Steiner’s concept is minimalistic: it’s all about clear solutions. Function, construction and form build a unity. The design of Clothilde was created for craft competition Handwerk+Form 2012, and the object was awarded third place. The jury’s comment: “The economical use of materials and the multiple possibilities for use and combination characterize this piece of furniture. In everyday life it finds multiple uses – as a stool, stacking container and side table.”
