Low-slung Thimble and its taller sibling, 1/5 Thimble, by Dowel Jones are simple, smart, stackable stools designed to enhance contemporary settings indoors and out. The original design dates back to 2012, when – with , one half of Dowel Jones – was out walking around Geelong.

“I noticed the public sitting on security bollards outside stores, and then when walking around the pier and waterfront, how fisherman were sitting on the bollards intended to be used to secure the fishing boats that visited the port. Inspiration came from how the general public used any available object to sit upon for rest,” explains Lynch.

To celebrate the launch of their new stools, Dowel Jones collaborated with – a 3D artist and designer based in New York City. The images, commissioned specifically for this collection, showcase Thimble in a host of ethereal 3D environments that blur the border between reality and fantasy.
