It’s no secret that Fort Standard make fantastic objects of use and pieces of exquisite furniture. The New York-based designers have been featured on the site before for their intricate and extraordinary contribution to the world of adventure, Life Is Precious, a ten-piece survival kit for the distinguished hiker. Now we’re featuring them again for their most recent beautiful object, created for an excellent cause. Chainsaw Stools are a collection of stools roughly hewn from fallen trees and painted with colours inspired by storms. They’ve been produced to raise funds for aid relief after Hurricane Sandy and we’re pretty confident they’ll have done an excellent job of it.
