A versatile wooden stool with design bonafides from Copenhagen-based Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen also reveals all the hallmarks of great carpentry. Passage Stool is expertly crafted in FSC-certified solid oak in either a warm natural tone or a dark lacquer finish. Devised as a flatpack for eco-friendly shipping and easy self-assembly, it can be used anywhere — as an extra seat at the dining table or desk and even as a handy side table — and multiples can be stacked when not in use.

From lighting and furniture, tabletop to bath, the wide offerings of Menu speaks to this Copenhagen-based company’s guiding quest for functional originality. “It’s about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings as well as improving processes in people’s daily lives,” says Menu founder Bjarne Hansen. This is also reflected in its stable of influential creatives including Norm Architects, Afteroom Studio, Jonas Wagell and Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen among others standouts.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production.
