Maya Lin Stones Child Stool

Designed by Maya Lin While still an undergraduate at Yale University, Maya Lin came to international prominence with her award-winning design for the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington, D.C. Her Stones Collection, which blurs the boundaries between architecture and art, demonstrates a passion for topography, celestial elements and natural phenomena, and a fondness for elliptical shapes and subtle curves. THE DESIGN | FEATURES AT A GLANCE | DIMENSIONS | ORDER WITH CONFIDENCE The Design Maya Lin’s first collection of Stones, designed in celebration of Knoll’s 60th anniversary, includes a coffee table and both an adult and child sized seat. “At the heart of this furniture collection for Knoll is my love for the land, which can be traced back to my childhood in the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio,” says Lin. “It goes back to a childhood fascination we all have — that moment when you discover that the earth is round...and you walk around trying to see that curve.” The Stones Child Seat reflects Maya Lin’s fascination with the relationship between human beings and nature through elegant, poignant forms, arcing curves and the use of natural, recycled and living materials. It is available in a range of colors and materials, including cast stone and molded polyethylene, and features a slightly concave top.
