Bechara Maalouf: The Stoop Stool

Image of 4 stools

Bechara Maalouf (BFA 20) works as a prod­uct design lead at Chas­sie, a fur­ni­ture design stu­dio known for their wacky desks and table tops located in the South Bronx, NY. The Stamps alum saw an abun­dance of scrap wood being left behind with each desk being pro­duced, and saw an oppor­tu­nity to cre­ate some­thing fun and unique. Once the Stoop Stools are made, they are ran­domly placed through­out the streets of NYC for peo­ple to stum­ble upon and take home for them­selves. The goal of the project is to use scrap wood to cre­ate fur­ni­ture that is acces­si­ble to any­one will­ing to go look­ing for it. 

Check out the Stoop Stool insta­gram: @stoopstool to see how they’re made and where they’re placed from week to week so you can go out look­ing for them!

Stoop stools can also be pur­chased in very lim­ited quan­ti­ties at chas​sie​.com.
