Design of the Day – KOKET Mandi stool

 

Juan di Santo commented on a recent post and brought the KOKET brand to my attention. I just love the elegance and simplicity of the designs, it’s right up my street!  The brand was created by New York born Creative Director Janet Morais, who wanted to inspire designers and push their creativity. She manages a team of super skilled artisans and jewellers who’s skills are impeccable. The pieces are manufactured in Portugal and available to buy through Interior Designers.

I’ve chosen KOKETS’  “Mandi Demi-Lune” stool simply for its beauty and striking gold turrets. This piece is designed to connote a cuff  that a  women would wear as a piece of jewellery around her wrist. 

The base is made from stainless steel and the turrets from brass, the seat itself is low pile black velvet.  The stool is 45 cm high and 53 cm wide and comes in black and gold or black and silver. Thank you Juan for telling me about KOKET their designs are exquisite.

After the success of her interior design business based on the island, Jo aimed for new heights and is now re-designing homes all over the country.
