The C401 stool
A strong formal presence

Montréal, Canada

Kastella



Montréal, Canada, 2015-11-06 -

Kastella is proud to announce the launch of the C401 stool, the first in the collection by the Montreal-based manufacturer and distributor of premium wood furniture.

The concept underlying the C401 is the product of ten years of research and development invested by this innovative firm. The result is a highly elegant stool that seems to be made of a single piece of wood. Its simple geometry brings to mind the clean sensual lines of Danish design, making this a landmark piece for the contemporary kitchen. The nearly semi-spherical shape of the seat and the seamless transition with the legs assure an even weight distribution and solid construction. The machined brass footrest guarantees the comfort and balance essential to a bar stool. The C401 emphasizes the unique character of solid wood. Every detail has been carefully thought out by the designers to blend form and function, but, most of all, to please the user.

  

Sustainable production

 

Kastella’s philosophy is grounded in sustainable development principles. High-quality manufacturing and a timeless, minimalist style ensure that the firm’s collections boast exceptional physical and aesthetic durability. Rejecting the logic of consumerism, Kastella’s products are truly built to last.

 

In order to minimize the environmental impact of wood harvest and transportation, the company sources its raw materials from FSC forests in nearby regions, specifically the American Northeast and Midwest as well as Canada. Consistent with that approach, all items are manufactured in Montreal. The company’s various suppliers (hardware, upholstery, finishing, etc.) are also local.

 

About Kastella

Kastella was founded by Jason Burhop, a man with a passion for excellent design and craftsmanship. He was strongly influenced by his father, whose European roots sparked Jason’s interest in refined furniture and helped him develop an affinity for well-designed objects. After earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, he decided to take a new path and follow his passion.

 

In 1999, Burhop took over a friend’s workshop, where he spent long hours honing his skills and creating his first collection. Quebec’s furniture industry was changing quickly at the time, with many companies going out of business or sending their production offshore. In 2001, as a self-taught furniture maker, Burhop seized an opportunity: not to produce his goods elsewhere, but to make his creations in Montreal. Two years later, Burhop opened a retail space with his first collection of solid-wood contemporary furniture.

 

Today, Kastella employs dedicated craftspeople who share his passion for creating beautiful, functional and timeless furniture.
