In 2003, architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows began drafting their vision for a new kind of American luxury company. A genuine, fully integrated lifestyle brand stemming from their shared aesthetic sensibilities, it would encompass architectural projects and interiors as well as impeccably crafted furniture, lifestyle objects and personal accessories. BassamFellows’ pioneering Craftsman Modern aesthetic, which marries architectural authority with a minimal-artisanal philosophy, was introduced with the debut of the iconic BassamFellows Tractor Stool at the 2003 Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Combining architectural precision with the honest, humanistic character of the handmade, the Tractor Stool embodies the BassamFellows ‘Craftsman Modern’ lifestyle vision. The stool’s shape is directly influenced by the precise ergonomics of a Swiss tractor seat. Carved from a piece of sustainably and locally harvested solid wood using techniques applied to the making of shoe lasts, it is then hand-finished by expert cabinetmakers. The stool is elegant yet informal, and supremely comfortable. It is suitable for both residential or contract use and is available in teak for outdoor settings. Over time the stool’s solid wood form acquires a finish that enhances, rather than masks, its natural state.
