Inspired by the no-nonsense seating used in gathering rooms at churches, schools, and other public buildings, the Church Stool from Gus* Modern is a counter-height design with a bent-ply seat and back and powder-coated metal frame. An eminently functional piece, this stool is also made socially useful, as for each one purchased Fab will make a small donation to City Harvest, an organization dedicated to rescuing food for hungry New Yorkers.
Canadian industrial engineer David Podsiadlo launched Toronto-based Gus* Design Group in a basement with two friends in 2002. The company’s furniture and lighting offer a contemporary take on mid-century archetypes. Using simple yet original profiles, tailored lines, and honest materials, its unfussy pieces incorporate practical purpose with quality construct
Seat height 24".
City Harvest regularly gives food to nearly 600 community programs, a service complemented by programs that address longer-term issues that surround hunger in New York City.
