This barstool is influenced by the overall material and immaterial qualities of a cafe in Edmonton, which were visually clean and simple. The name tamp is referencing the device used to pack down espresso grounds, relating to the idea that the chair is mainly friction fit to the base. This would allow the chair to be shipped in two stacked groups. Once unpacked, the seat would simply nest onto the metal frame. The chair holds a strong visual lightness as to allow the maximum amount of light travel through the space, and the base maintains continuity as is repeated through the cafe.
