Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek designed the Plywood Print Stool collection for wallpaper manufacturer NLXL's new off shoot brand, NLXL LAB. The stools feature the most recognisable paintings from the art collection of Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum and are the first non-wallpaper product to be sold by NLXL.

“Working with NLXL on the Scrapwood Wallpaper collections has been a very good balance between fun and success. Therefore I am very pleased to add this new printed plywood stool to the NLXL LAB editions. This product can only exist through today’s techniques: CNC wood cutting machines and wood enabled printers. I thought it would be a great idea to combine these innovations with century old Dutch masters from the Rijksmuseum collection.” - Piet Hein Eek.

The stools come flat-packed in bags designed to be hung from shop display rails, and are designed to be self- assembled. Three tapered plywood legs slot together to form a base for the seat. The artwork is not limited to the Rijksmuseum collection. As Rick Vintage puts it: “We are talking to a few museums to print stools with art from their collection so we can make limited editions for museum shops. We hope to get in touch with museums worldwide.” We expect these to be in high demand. Pre-order yours now to avoid disappointment.
