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.
