Product description

This four-legged children’s stool is the most elemental of furniture pieces, equally suitable as a seat, table, storage unit, or display surface. The legs are mounted directly to the underside of the round seat without the need for complicated connecting elements. Thanks to its geometry, the stool can be stacked to save space in a spiralling tower sculpture. Hardwearing and versatile, Stool NE60 is created from the original L-leg system of standardised components and is equally suited to homes, public buildings, and educational facilities. First produced in 1934, this stool has been part of children’s lives for generations.

Concept

The stool is the most elemental of furniture pieces, a part of daily life since time immemorial. Eternally contemporary, the stool provides a surface for seating, storage, and display. Practical, portable, and adaptable, the stool may be moved at will and can fulfil a variety of roles from step to seat. Modest and unobtrusive, in groups, the stool may be used to seat multitudes. Varying in material and design, some stools are made to stack, saving space when not in use. Uniting the values of craftsmanship, durability, and timelessness, Artek’s stools have been among its most iconic and beloved products since the company’s founding.
