Rooster Stools – Barry Simpson for Dirt Road
An elegant example of the Design/Build Movement in American design.
The Rooster Stool by Barry Simpson for his company Dirt Road has become a highly coveted example of the 'Design/Build' and Sustainable Movement of the 1960's and 70's in America. It is now included in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum and has also been collected and sold by high end New York design boutiques.
Barry Simpson gained his masters in Architecture from Yale University in the early 1960's but a love for the outdoors led him to pursue a self-reliant, sustainable and collaborative lifestyle in the rural Mad River Valley. It was here that Simpson set up Dirt Road Furniture which allowed him to train and work with local members of the community.
It's easy to see Barry's flair for architectural design in these graphic, highly functional plywood stools / side tables. They are an excellent example of the power of design to elevate the ordinary and create beauty in simplicity.
