"Prouvé combines the soul of an engineer with that of an architect" -Le Corbusier

For the design of Tabouret Haut Jean Prouvé drew on a traditional type of bar stool that is still in common use today: a round seat disc resting on top of four long, slanted legs. A ring is mounted to the inside of the legs at about a third of their height from the floor, increasing the rigidity of the construction and also serving as a comfortable footrest. Prouvé's interpretation of this classic type is distinguished by its simple, unpretentious appearance, lucid construction and harmonious proportions.

Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), architect, engineer and designer, was endeavored for using highly-developed technologies for metal processing to achieve innovative constructions and forms in his design and architecture work. He played a decisive part in developing construction techniques using light-weight prefabricated parts in architecture, making use, among other things, of insights from the airplane and automotive industry. In his Ateliers Jean Prouvé, the company he founded in 1947, he started not only producing light-weight components but also his own design drafts.

Tabouret Haut stools feature legs and seat in solid oak, natural or dark stain with a clear protective lacquer finish. Footrest in chromed tubular steel with anti-skid surface.

23.75" dia. | 30.5" h | seat: 15" dia.
