This barstool designed by Aurélien Barbry allows people of different heights to sit comfortably thanks to footrests positioned at various heights.
Copenhagen designer Aurelien Barbry created the prototype by joining together six rectangular frames made from bent strips of steel, with a seventh circular frame as the base.
The structure is divided into three vertical sections each made from two pieces, creating footrests where they meet.
The designer deliberately made the pieces of steel for each side different lengths so that the supports will occur at different heights.
One side features a footrest three quarters of the way down the stool, another is positioned halfway and the last one a quarter of the way down.
"The three foot rests make this barstool usable by everyone, adults or children, and lets you place your legs as you want," said Barbry.
The resulting structure is then capped by a thin piece of black plywood to create the seat.
At present the stool is still a prototype, but is available on request.
