The Odette series comprises bar stools and tables, suitable for hotels, restaurants and homes. The pedestal table system is built on a powder coated steel base with tops in a large variety of shapes, sizes and heights. The bars stools have matching bases and foot rests, and upholstered cushions.
Odette is about doing something very small, a gesture, that has a big impact. By twisting the footrest Chris Martin created something that looks both intriguing and strong. The twisted footrest allows your feet to rest comfortably in different positions and the upholstered seat gives a softness to the design.
“The name Odette refers to the white swan in the ballet Swan Lake. A row of Odette stools become a visual sculpture with dynamic movement in different directions, much like a row of ballerinas, dancing across the stage. “
The Odette collection’s strong base makes it suitable for public spaces. Since 2015, 680 Odette stools can be found at Arlanda Airport in Stockholm. Even though they are used 24 hours a day with over 26 million passengers each year, to this day only two stools have been in need of repair.
