    As an interior designer specializing in restaurants, Pepe Cortes has a unique appreciation of how people interact with furniture. Recognizing that stools are constantly being moved, he challenged himself to create an aluminum stool that was lightweight and therefore easy scoot, slide or simply pick up.

     

    The resulting Jamaica Stool brought Cortes worldwide recognition, and has been a go-to favorite of commercial and residential interior designers since its introduction in 1993. The stool is manufactured for Knoll in Spain by Amat-3, a third generation family-owned manufacturer committed to high quality fabrication and innovative design.

    One of Spain’s most renowned designers, Pepe Cortès studied interior design at the Eina Design School in his native Barcelona before founding the multidisciplinary design group Grupo Abierto de Diseno (Open Design Group).

    As the firm’s principal, he has designed award-winning retail spaces, office interiors, restaurants, and furniture. From 1984 to 1988 he served on the board of the FAD (Fomento de las Artes Decorativas), a cultural institution dedicated to the celebration and promotion of Spanish design. Cortes was awarded the FAD Jury/Opinion Award in 1983, 1991, 2003, and 2007.

    Cortes’ relationship with Knoll began in 1993 with the introduction of the Jamaica Stool. The cast aluminum design — manufactured by the Spanish design company AMAT-3 and distributed by Knoll — has become a design icon worldwide.
