While we can all identify with Michael Marriot’s way of working, designing with economy and uid lines is not as easy as it sounds. The Alto is particularly suited to executive offices, five-star hotel bars and minimalist restaurants. Take a seat and order your gin with a slimline tonic.‘I designed Alto as a cantilever stool that uses at oval section steel tube to structural advantage, offering a visual and literal lightness.’ Michael Marriot
