THE ARNOLD CIRCUS STOOL BOOK By Martino Gamper
The Arnold Circus Stool has enjoyed enduring and universal adoration, the stool worthy of all 12 Olympian god's backsides. It’s designer, Martino Gamper, locates its success squarely (or should we say octagonally) in its functionality. “Necessity is the mother of many inventions,” he writes, and the Arnold Circus Stool was created out of a need to create public seating that is lightweight, multi-functional, stackable and comfortable. In Gamper’s book on the subject, we see the many iterations, functions, and contexts for which the Circus Stool has been found useful — from step-ladder to baby bath to planter right back to its humble origin as a chair. Lovingly explained and colourfully illustrated, The Arnold Circus Stool is an indispensable document on a classic in furniture design.
