Concept

Attempting to make a skateboard as a child, Norwegian Hallgeir Homstvedt bent and shaped a piece of plywood—and an obsession was born. His Pal stool draws on that childhood epiphany. Its thin, curved wooden legs screw into the outside of the round seat through an X-shaped joint, making for strength and meaning assembly is child’s play (no tools are required). Its lightweight frame makes this thoroughly satisfying piece easily transportable from room to room.

The Pal bar stool retains all the advantages of the low stool - easy assembly, lightweight sturdiness, affordability - while its extra height makes it perfect for bars and restaurants as well as kitchen counters. Designed by Hallgeir Homstvedt, the slender, curved legs were inspired by skateboard-making techniques and attach to the curved base through an ingenious X-shaped joint. The metal bracket on the legs makes for added strength and stability.
