aphrodite stool was created in collaboration with tannan winter and designed for a hypothetical client, the brand anthropologie. we were inspired by the aquatic motifs and cultural references characteristic of anthropologie's design aesthetic. the tool marks and weathered finish evoke greek statuary, while the name references the boticelli painting the birth of venus. the aphrodite stool was designed in solidworks and cnc milled, then finished by hand.
