Luce Center Label

Rawhide Stool was made through a process known as "bent lamination," in which the seat frame and legs were built up of several pieces of wood glued together and then shaped by heat and steam. The darker wood is hyedua (pronounced ee-ED-wa), named for the area of Ghana, West Africa, where it is found; the lighter wood is oak.
