Michael Randall launches ‘Modern Coppice Products’
Coppice Stool #1
Michael Randall launches his Coppice Stool, the first piece in his Modern
Coppice Products series between 9-14 April at Designersblock Milano
Inspired by coppicing, an ancient woodland management technique, the
Coppice Stool is a domestic stool constructed of coppiced Hazel poles and
Ash planks. The carefully constructed Ash seat and raw, un-machined Hazel
poles are lashed together with cotton webbing.
Michael says: “The collection was based on creating and developing
products for domestic interiors, utilising the produce of coppicing. This
process allows me to produce sustainable, socially responsible, attractive
products that have a beneficial affect on the environment and the society
that produces them.”
Coppice stools are made by hand to order.
