Modern? Check. Functional? Check. Sustainable? Double check.

The furniture brand Dims. is known for its sustainable, beautifully crafted pieces—and its latest launch is no exception. In fact, it’s one of our favorite new sustainable products.

Designed by Norway’s Stine Aas, the Cleo Stool is a sleek, bold stool that adds a minimalist, modern seating option to any room. A sister product to Aas’ best-selling Cleo Chair, the stool consists of soft yet geometrical elements.

“In both the Cleo Chair and the Cleo Stool I wanted to highlight the back of the chair, since this is the part of the chair you actually see the most,” she says. “I love that the Cleo Stool is so simple—really highlighting the back and the lightness in the way the seat is lifted from the frame.”

Aas grew up on the Norwegian coast, surrounded by mountains and fjords, and has always had a close relationship with nature. Her work, including the Cleo Stool, is inspired by the organic patterns in the landscape she grew up in as well as Scandinavian culture.

With a rounded back and comfortable molded seat supported by solid ash wood legs, the Cleo Stool is a design-forward, functional piece for any space.
