Description

Cétoine takes its cues from its French namesake, a specific breed of iridescent beetle.

Considered to be sacred in ancient cultures, the beetle’s exoskeleton changes color and form depending on a viewer’s perspective.

Inspired by this appealing camouflage, Perini and Kiwibravo took up the challenge of translating it into a design for daily life. Amazingly, they captured the magic of nature in their Cétoine stool.

A vibrant furniture that has life, that changes and surprises. Move around it and experience the changes in shape and color and the effect it has on its surroundings.

Moreover, when combining several Cétoine stools they generate a columned bench.
