Ironman celebrates our experiments with unconventional making processes and surface
finishes. Inspired by traditional West African tribal furniture, it replaces millennia of ad-hoc
wood carving with an equally ancient blend of hand carving and metal casting. The result
is a uniquely expressive object capturing iron age technology.
Like itʼs African forebears, Ironman is robust and functional despite its diminutive scale.
Manufactured in East London from CS cast Iron, Ironman presents a range of individual stool designs by Diplomat that are entirely hand carved and will consciously vary with reproduction.
Manufactured entirely in London from CS cast Iron, the range of 10 Ironmen are entirely
hand carved so each one is individual in appearance. The legs are deliberately left with a
rough texture while the seating surface and top edge are finished to a high polish.
