The Alodia stool achieves its bracing, minimalist design with a single-minded focus on function over form. After reducing the concept of a stool to the bare minimum of material, we arrived at a surprising, magical design: Alodia presents a refreshing, bold profile, and a daring modernist take on the bar stool. Carefully engineered to withstand the rigors of life as a bar stool and sitters of all weights while using the bare minimum of materials, Alodia is more than a stool. It’s a magic trick.

An art piece commissioned by Zerofirst Gallery, Librilounge pays homage to traditional Japanese woodcraft and culture. Sofas are often used simply as a place to sit and read.

Larca commissioned Todd Bracher Studio to reimagine the rosary. It’s difficult to think of an object more sacred, traditional, and historically consistent than the rosary. The rosary is fraught with meaning: it’s a holy icon and a symbol of devotion and the divine. But at its core, the 800-year-old rosary is a utilitarian object—it’s a prayer counter.

Technology has made these tools simpler, streamlined, intuitive — all while delivering better performance in a beautiful package. We looked to provide the same level of execution in a multipurpose chair.
In helping HBF assess the market for open-plan office design, our research showed that many spaces were plagued by awkward, leftover areas.
