The Falabella Stool Is Inspired By The World’s Smallest Horse

After a successful collaboration on the modular Lucy sofa, Swedish furniture design company Offecct and designer Lucy Kurrein have released a new, completely different design called the Falabella stool. The name is borrowed from the world’s smallest horse, a species that Lucy often sketched in her childhood. The stool has similar features to the animal, including legs that mimic the silhouette of the horse’s head.

Maria Olofsson Karemyr, Brand Manager at Offecct, explains further: “The stool shares similar qualities. It’s user-friendly, dainty and light, and easy to like. And at first sight, you also know this will be the start of a long-lasting relationship.”

The Falabella has a gem-like form made of molded plywood that’s neat and lightweight for transporting around. While the design looks simple, manufacturing the stool is a testament to Offecct’s dedication to craftsmanship. Lucy shares, “Falabella is based on a design idea that I have carried with me for a long time, ever since my studies. Although the product may look straightforward and simple, it puts high demands on the manufacturer’s craftsmanship. When Offecct asked me to create a small piece of occasional furniture, it was finally possible for us to make Falabella come true.”
