In 2003, architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows began drafting their vision for a new kind of American luxury company. A genuine, fully integrated lifestyle brand stemming from their shared aesthetic sensibilities, it would encompass architectural projects and interiors as well as impeccably crafted furniture, lifestyle objects and personal accessories. BassamFellows’ pioneering Craftsman Modern aesthetic, which marries architectural authority with a minimal-artisanal philosophy, was introduced with the debut of the iconic BassamFellows Tractor Stool at the 2003 Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Natural grain aniline leather cushioning is suspended in the sling, generously comforting the sitter. The seat and back cushion folds over the front apron and backrest with a custom-pleated stitch to fit snugly within the chair’s frame. The back cushioning is cleverly coupled to the chair’s nickel or bronze-plated cross rails with low-slung leather belting ensuring it will retain its form over years of use. Further comfort is achieved with the cushion’s feather and down-layer topping and dual density foam. Similarly, the chair’s tubular steel arms are sumptuously draped with leather side cushions that are secured to the frame with leather belting, subtly emphasizing the contrast between the minimal structure and more voluminous proportions of the cushions. The result: composed comfort.
