The Baby Bite Stool can be a stool, a side table, or even a puzzle, as one slots into another to create a playful range of colour combinations.
Made from roto-moulded polypropylene (in very basic terms, plastic that has been moulded by rotational force), these stools are great for outdoors as well as indoors. The Baby Bite Stools also represent the first collaboration between prolific and supremely playful designer Karim Rashid and xO Design – a design powerhouse whose early founders were the likes of Philippe Starck and Gérard Mialet and which sets out to cross design lines at every turn. As Starck described the partnership: “To make a beautiful baby, parents have to be in love,” and xO was a definite love affair.
The design team describes the
Baby Bite Stool as a zoomorphic, organic, animated object. As far as we are concerned, they are an incredibly practical piece of furniture
and super-super fun
