Back in 2009, the Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner designed stools made of recycled plastic for an installation at the Upper Austrian State Gallery. And at the exhibition’s opening event, each visitor was invited to take home one of them. What began as a design intervention soon developed into a popular piece of furniture in households both in Austria and beyond. And Feichtner’s stool was also acquired and used by museums including the MAK (Vienna) and the Salzburg Museum, design festivals such as the Venice Biennale of Architecture and Vienna Design Week, and universities including the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. This stool has since become something of a design classic, owned by the most important design collections. And due to ongoing demand, it has now been produced in a second edition—that comes in various colors.
The stool’s seating surface and its three legs are formed from equally thick surfaces. Each of these surfaces has a structural function, which ensures maximum stability using the least possible amount of material. This stool thus shines as a versatile all-rounder—as a seating element or a side table, both indoors and out, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, at the office, or as an attractive accessory in the living room. Thanks to its robustness and stability, it can be used anywhere. And multiple stools can be stacked with virtually no effort, are quickly set up and cleared out, and are very easy to transport, making the stool uniquely suited for use as temporary seating for workshops, readings, and other events.
