Cooper Swivel Chair

Cooper (n): a person who makes or repairs wooden casks or barrels

To Cooper (v): to work as a cooper on; to work at or do coopering

First known use: 14th century

The centuries old art of barrel making, using the technique of manipulating staves or individual pieces of steam-bended wood, is the inspiration for Thos. Moser‚’s Cooper Chair. Designed by Brian Kane, the name Cooper is reminiscent of Brian‚’s longstanding connection to Napa, his second home. Perhaps the fruits of this valley, contained in the barrels themselves, have something to do with Brian‚’s interesting and innovative approach to coopering.
