Shapes, finishes and refined materials make these stools authentic design icons

The stool is a piece of furniture that is the protagonist of moments of informal conviviality. It is an agile, slender seat that can take on an elegant look and ease into a sophisticated living area. Let’s think, for example, of an open space in which the living room and kitchen coexist: here a set of iconic stools at the snack counter or island is the trump card to give stylistic continuity to the whole. As well as in the bar corner of a living room designed to welcome guests and friends: in this case the right stool can help create an interesting focal point. Without forgetting the functional aspects of this piece of furniture that offers an extra seat without requiring much space, especially if you choose an iconic collection designed with expertise so that style and comfort coexist in harmony.

Embrace by EOOS for Carl Hansen & Son

The Embrace seating collection (on the cover) is completely devoted to comfort, as the name suggests. The stool is made extremely stable by the oak wood structure, characterized by outwardly inclined legs. The double and generous cushion makes it soft and comfortable, also giving the right support to the back and allowing it to be used for a long time.

Beetle by Gamfratesi for Gubi

Also in the stools of the Beetle collection a large padded cushion guarantees a comfortable seat and at the same time, thanks to the various upholstery available, allows you to create combinations tailored to the environment in which they are inserted. The stool is available in two variants: with and without backrest, in the first case it is like a real chair, in the second it is more agile and informal.

A.I. Stool Recycled by Philippe Starck for Kartell

Comfort is the design inspiration of the A.I. Stool Recycled, imagined by Philippe Starck and created in the name of innovation. It is made entirely of recycled material and was designed by an artificial intelligence starting from a series of inputs given by the designer. Without forgetting the comfort of the backrest and the large seat and the possibility of choosing between two possible heights.

Fromme by Tom Chung for Petite Friture

Sturdy but light, essential but comfortable, the Fromme stool is stackable and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. It is the extension of the Fromme seating collection conceived by Canadian designer Tom Chung, and is available in a series of dark colours, such as black, brown red, and blue, or light ones, such as coral and mint green.

Angui of AYTM

The Angui stool has a simple yet effective style, in which geometric shapes alternate with elegance. There are two strong features: the cushion which makes the stool comfortable and visually soft and the small semicircle backrest. A formal detail that strongly identifies it.

Cirque by Martino Gamper for Wiener GTV Design

Martino Gamper has been able to interpret in a surprising way the recurring theme of the company’s stylistic history: the curvature of wood. This technique is used to create a series of intertwined circles which decorate and act as a backrest at the same time. The circle is precisely an evocation of the circus world from which the project takes its name and stage presence.

Park Place by Yaby Pushelberg for Man of Parts

Park Place is inspired by the Manhattan skyline and like a skyscraper it has a slender and elegant shape. The structure is characterized by three thin legs, one of them, in the rear part, becomes an essential backrest that embraces and supports. The range of finishes available is very interesting: pink copper, matt black or polished nickel, combined with a series of equally sophisticated fabric or leather upholstery.

Mexico by Charlotte Perriand for Cassina

The Mexique stool is part of a larger collection that also includes a bar table, a dining table, a coffee table, and a writing desk. All the elements are united by the solid wood seat with organic shapes that rests on a metal structure equipped, in the stool, with a brushed steel footrest. The stool is available in the high or low bar version.
