Introducing the Arnold Circus Stool...
The Martino Gamper Arnold Circus Stool began its' life as part of an urban regeneration project in 2006. Arnold Circus is situated in the heart of Shoreditch, East London, built on the rubble of the old slums, it is part of the Boundary Estate, London’s first council housing project.
After falling into disrepair, in 2004, Friends of Arnold Circus, a charity committed to revitalizing the park and creating a shared public space for everyone enjoy, worked with artists such as Gamper and Rachael Whiteread to raise funds for the upkeep of the gardens and historic bandstand. FOAC host a number of community events and volunteer initiatives throughout the year.
The Martino Gamper Arnold Circus stool is the official seating for Arnold Circus events like the circus picnic, brass band concerts, carrom tournaments, flower plantings, music and film events.

The Arnold Circus stool stocked at Civil Dawn Studio is available in 6 colours and is rotation moulded, stackable, polyethylene plastic. The stool is made in Australia under license.
Used throughout the world, each country has a unique colour scheme. We love the Arnold Circus stool as a base for bench seating, upside down as a plant holder and as a small table.
