Spoon StoolPrice: $750.00
Design by Antonio Citterio.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Spoon Stool is a great example of Kartell technology, which reveals great attention not only to the functionality of the design, but also to its formal elegance.
This revolutionary bar stool, designed by Antonio Citterio, has slim, curved lines which bring to mind the outline of a spoon. The innovation of the project is twofold: first, the connection of the seat to the central leg by means of an elastic curve in a plastic material resists the stresses and strains exerted by weight; and second, the introduction of a handle, inside the leg, regulates the mechanism of the gas pump. Thus the height of the stool can be raised but the clean line of the whole is preserved.
Thanks to the stylish line, the brilliant colors and the versatility of the material, Spoon height adjustable stool can be used in many different contexts: home, office, bars and fashionable restaurants.
