A couple of weeks ago I visited the studio and showroom of new design collective YOURS, and I'm still going on about it, jeez Alana.
James McNab is one third of YOURS, and his debut product range for YOURS is the Collar Stool.
It's super handsome, with its american ash body (available in Short or Tall), and its held together by just a single steel brace - there are no screws at all in the Short stool.
My favourite is the black stained version with black steel brace (there's a pic of it down there, oooweee).
That cross you see is the top of the steel brace that holds the stool completely together.
