I love the idea of taking a time-honored, traditional design and giving it a modern twist. It feels so right for our times. Indeed, my inspiration for the Parquet Table/Stool was to reinterpret parquet flooring into a new context.
Check out these parquet floors at the Stella McCartney shop in Milan. A familiar and humble material has been elevated to a strikingly graphic design element by staining portions in shades of red and green. The all white interior recedes into the background, making the floor pattern and merchandise the stars of the show. Now that’s a twist.
