Dezeen Showroom: London-based design studio Pearson Lloyd aimed to bring the ethos of replaceability to an overlooked furniture type with the Cross Bar chair, created for Takt.

"The Cross Bar chair extends Takt's commitment to full replaceability and repairability to a new furniture category, delivering an efficient solution to the bar-stool market," said Pearson Loyd co-founder Luke Pearson.

The Cross Bar chair is repairable with replaceable components

Its repairable nature makes the stool particularly good for hospitality and workplace settings, although aesthetically it is just as suited to the home.

The Cross Bar chair comes in two heights and is made of timber that is available in three different finishes: oiled oak, smoked oak and black-lacquered oak.

It is made of timber with an optionally upholstered seat

The chair is designed to prioritise comfort and has a backrest that Pearson Lloyd also favours because it gives the stool a "definite orientation".

The seat can be optionally upholstered in a choice of three eco-labelled textile colours including sand grey, dark petrol or golden ochre or in cognac or black leather that has the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. For brands, Takt also offers the Cross Bar chair in additional colours.
