Formosa collection, 2016, Jacob Nitz for bogaerts label.
“Formosa was once the name of Taiwan given by the Portuguese - meaning "beautiful island".
The Formosa collection was inspired during a trip traveling Taiwan with my family. Each stool acts as an independent island surrounding a central island (the table) - tying each element together.”
A Formosa set consists out of a table and 4 stackable stools and is designed for public spaces like offices, lunchrooms and schools. The table and stool tops come in solid oak or powder coated mdf.
The oak tops can be finished with a matte lacquer or a coloured wash and matte lacquer. The MDF edition is finished with a very strong powder coating for an extreme durability of the table and stool tops. All powder coating has a light structure.
