The furniture whisperer
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
For the design of Tabouret Haut Jean Prouvé drew on a traditional type of bar stool that is still in common use today: a round seat disc 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.
