Vitra Tabouret Haut Stool by Jean Prouvé
Item No.: DS147
- Designed by Jean Prouvé in 1942
- Constructed from solid oak and polished tubular steel.
- 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.
