“Popular in the seventies, forgotten in the eighties.” Back at Mooi Muff in the Hague, Netherlands, I spotted these stools that looked like creatures from ’70s sci-fi.
They are Casalino Stools by Alexeander Begge, for Casala. Glossy, quizzical, biomorphic, and stacking. This is the only furniture line Begge ever designed.
Remakes are available here, but I doubt their label has the original’s cool ‘Made in W-Germany’ I found on these. I’m kicking myself for not grabbing these. If only they could’ve fit as carry-on luggage! And now I see they fetch about $400/each for the originals.
