Cork is a wonder material—naturally warm, flexible, strong, water resistant, and renewable. Designer Lars Beller Fjetland was inspired after salvaging soft, smooth pieces of driftwood cork from a beach in Norway and went on to use it as an alternative to upholstery in our family of Drifted Stools. The warm and tactile cork seats are paired with sturdy oak frames for strength and longevity. Drifted is available in two heights and two types of cork; the darker version achieves its deep color from being smoked.
Lars Beller Fjetland grew up on the west coast of Norway, where his enthusiasm for design was matched by a fascination with nature. Fjetland's work is shaped by those two qualities, marrying traditional Scandinavian design with the random beauty of nature. Inspired by the flotsam and jetsam washed ashore near the Norwegian town of Øygarden, his series epitomises his approach.
