Perhaps Monarchy is a form of regime for many people but for others it is a source of creativity and innovation. In case of the Greek Designer Yiannis Ghikas, Monarchy has been the inspiration for his latest concept. The Monarchy stool comes in a crown shape in two versions, one in painted solid beech and another in natural solid oak. Having the form of a crown, the stool rocks back and forth but its design ensures no overturns.

So, if you consider stability quite boring then you may "play" safely with the Monarchy as it provides very sturdy support with a simple and inspiring design.If you are looking for a rocking stool then Ghikas' new concept is what you need. Simple, practical and sophisticated Monarchy stool will meet your needs by giving a Royal touch in your place.
Well, Monarchy ROCKS after all!

About Yiannis Ghikas

Yiannis Ghikas was born in 1969 in Greece, a few kilometers out of Athens and he was an 18-year-old student of informatics at the Athens University of Economics and Business, when he realized that he wanted to become an industrial designer. So It took him a long time to become a student again, this time in product design.
