The U.M.O., a kid-sized bench/stool/table object by François Chambard, first showed up at Brooklyn Design a couple of years ago, in a cork version.
Some time between now and then, Chambard added a felt-covered option, UMO2, which seems both more and less practical than the cork. It also seems like a lot more work, in that there are structural and material changes involved, not just adding a fuzzy slipcover.
But that's OK, because every UMO is lovingly handcrafted in the Users & Makers atelier in Brooklyn. Embrace the artisanal cork. No idea where it's sold, or for how much. So go ahead and give them a ring.
