The three strands that form the back are derived from the recognisable outlines of Arne Jacobsen's Series 7 chair, Charles Eames' DSW seat and Eero Saarinen's Tulip design. These intertwined shapes create a back support and armrests that flow into the seat and legs.
"The stool version is available with longer legs, the seat is smaller, but the inimitable graphic hallmark of its frame coming from the interweaving of three silhouettes is the same," said the designer.
The proportions of the original chair have been altered to incorporate the smaller seat and the longer legs are braced by a square ring close to the ground, which doubles as a footrest.
Available in a range of colours, the bar stool can be used both indoors or outdoors. It was launched at the Maison&Objet trade fair outside Paris, which finished earlier this week.
