"With the Oslo Counter & Bar Stool, we wanted to create a design that had a contemporary and elegant appearance, joined by extensive comfort," said Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll of Anderssen & Voll.
"Its smooth, embracing curves makes the design both inviting and sculptural while the slender legs make for an elevated and refined look," they added.
"The Oslo Counter & Bar Stool creates a new perspective on the traditional form with its rounded softness and gentle curves – a friendly design with modern yet long-lasting expressions."
Featuring a slender steel frame and an upholstered foam seat, the stool is the latest addition to the Oslo family of products, which features a sofa, chair and bench, all designed by the Norwegian studio for the Danish brand.
"As with its chair counterpart, the Oslo Counter & Bar Stool by Norwegian designers Anderssen & Voll enhances its contemporary and elegant appearance through its sculptural lines and enveloping back," said Muuto.
"With gentle shapes and an upholstered soft seat, the Oslo Counter & Bar Stool allows for the user to be seated comfortably while allowing them to do so at multiple angles, thanks to its curved edges and slender footrest for additional comfort and movability."
The stool's seat can be upholstered in a range of fabrics by Kvadrat and Rohleder, making it suitable for both the home and the workplace.
"The Counter & Bar Stool is derived from the design language brought forth by the Oslo Series and brings the idea of smooth, embracing curves into the counter and bar stool typology, joined by its visible frame and slender legs for an elevated and refined look," the brand added.
"With its inviting and sculptural silhouette, the Oslo Counter & Bar Stool is appealing on its own, in pairs or in formations—whether it be in a refined home setting, restaurant bar area or workspace."
