When a collection of furniture reminds you of the hit 1980s game show,Â Blockbusters, you know youâ€™re onto a winner.
But theÂ Rayuela stools from Spanish furniture designers Alvaro Catalan de Ocon, are of course so much more than that.
A repeated tile pattern is what makes these pieces so successful as the designs can be infinitely produced. Using the humble rhombus as a starting shape, three are combined to make a hexagon which, according to Alvaro Catalan de Ocon, is the best way to cover an area.
Matt surfaces with textured grain work extremely well together, with the designerâ€™s mixing waxed oak, walnut and maple to form this unusual, graphic optical effect due to the different colours. As a single stool or a tessellated collection of them, theyâ€™re strong simpleness demonstrates why the range is at Milan this year.
