For the design of Tabouret Haut, Jean Prouvé drew on a traditional type of bar stool that is still in common use today: a thin round seat resting on top of four long, canted legs. A ring is mounted to the inside of the legs at about a third of their height from the floor, increasing the rigidity of the construction and also serving as a comfortable footrest.
Prouvé’s interpretation of this classic type is distinguished by its simple, unpretentious appearance, lucid construction and harmonious proportions.
- Seat: solid oak, natural or dark stain, with protective varnish.
- Base: solid oak legs, natural or dark stain, with protective varnish. Footrest tubular steel, chrome-plated, anti-skid surface.
