We delve into the world of colour in this collaborative series with Paris-based designer Calla Haynes (CALLA). Inspired by the foot stools commonly found in the Souks of Morocco, this bench makes a statement with purpose.

Recycled fabric from the refuse of French luxury fashion houses is hand twisted to create a traditional Moroccan rag cord. The cord is then hand woven to form the seat, creating a unique and dynamic composition of tone and texture. Just as the cord invites you to look a little closer, so too do the oak legs. Seemingly simple geometry hides a trick of the turner’s trade - an offset turning that enables strong, yet balanced proportions without fanfare.

This is a made-to-order product, with a lead time of 12-14 weeks. Please contact us to inquire about custom options.

Collaboration Background

After putting her ready-to-wear collection CALLA on hiatus in 2015, Haynes wanted to do something meaningful with her unused fabrics.  Partnering with artisans in Morocco, she began creating one of a kind Berber carpets that have charmed the press (Wallpaper, Elle Decor, House & Home) and lead to a pop-up with Holt Renfrew.  Wanting to take the idea of recycling luxury fabrics further (and saving them from landfill), Haynes shared with Coolican & Company the concept of the Moroccan footstools.
