About the Designer

Geoffrey Warner's inspirations designs began with Scandinavian and eastern influences. These forms were close to his heart many years ago while he was studying with the Danish master, Tage Frid at the Rhode Island School of Design. These taught him to design with practicality, build with integrity and work with efficiency, but most importantly, not to compromise beauty.

Over the years he has developed a vocabulary guided by the geometry in nature; the nautilus spiral, a budding flower, or the wing of a crow, and gained a sense of proportion and confidence in applying sculptural forms to my work. He loves the inspiration that comes from my dialogue with customers. And is grateful that he still draws passion from this trade of working with wood, using his hands to transform.

Posture & Pressure

In 2013 Owl Furniture received a grant from the Maine Technology Institute to fund an analytical study by US Ergonomics. The image above comes out of that study and shows the difference in pressure distribution between a traditional flat seat and the Owl® Stool. The spacing of the holes in the Owl® Stool proved to be the perfect average for both male and female subjects. Furthermore, “Owl seat designs were very effective at reducing the peak pressure concentrations at the ischial tuberosities”.

Additionally, BIFMA test results demonstrate the strength and durability of the Owl® Stool, up to 300 lbs.
