prince aha stool

Design Philippe Starck, 1996
Made in Italy by Kartell

A practical stool and stand to place beside the couch or the bed. The pastel colors, the texture of the material used and the geometric design make Prince Aha a flexible product, easy to insert in any context. We prefer to stack six of them on end to create a totemic and colorful monument to modernism.... a pragmatic and artful way to store them when not in use. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

As one of the best-known contemporary designers in the world, Philippe Starck has placed honesty and integrity at the core of his designs producing quality products with longevity & durability.

17" h | 11.9" dia.

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the École Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President François Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.

Fun little piece, shorter than I thought it would be
ModernSarasota, more than a month ago.
I bought these to use as little side tables on our pool lanai, but turns out they are awkwardly short for that. I kept them anyway. They are light, fun, and easy to clean. Still ok for a drink, but not exactly quite right. Make sure you double check the color when you order. The picture does not show the ordered color. I thought I had ordered gray because the picture was gray, but they sent white which was what was selected. Didn't matter but it was irritating at the time.

A winner
jennifer, more than a month ago.
I love these versatile stools so much that I bought 4. Love that there's storage inside them (though honestly I never use that feature) and they are perfect for my patio. Shipped fast and great communication. Hive customer service is fantastic!

Love this stool! Fast Shipping and Timely Updates too!
Kat, more than a month ago.
I loved my experience with Hive as they updated me with the progress of my order until it shipped.

Product arrived well-packaged. The stool is perfect for small spaces, is sturdy enough to sit on, and can be a cute storage seat.

Nice compliment to my living room
Jovi, more than a month ago.
It is exactly what I expected. I bought white color. Even though it is not as white as my BDI white media cabinet and book cases, it goes nicely with the other midcentury wooden pieces.

So versatile!
Julia in Park City, Utah, more than a month ago.
We already have 3 of these stools in the pale lavender. And we use them in so many ways: side tables inside and out, stools.

We got two more and got the pigeon color, which is really beautiful.

Great, all-around useful.
