Monk barstool with backrest

Bar stools from Prostoria, Designed by Grupa

Product description

The Monk barstools with a backrest are new members of the Monk collection. The seat and the back are made of bent plywood, similarly as in the Monk chairs and easy chairs, -and upholstered in fabric. The base comes in two heights (counter stool – 60 cm; barstool – 75cm), with four legs or a sled base.


The Monk collection brings together the regional modernist tradition and contemporary design. Originally, the chair and easy chair were designed for the renovation of the architectural icon – the Palace Hotel in Dubrovnik. At the same time, they were homage to the very popular Lupina chair, a classic designed by Niko Kralj. This simple idea is reduced to finding harmony in joining two bended platforms: one for the backrest and the other expanding into the armrest. This results in an upholstered shell mounted on various types of legs – higher ones for the chair and lower ones for the armchair. The name for this collection is a figurative association that simultaneously follows the modernist ethics that inspired the team of designers: it seems as if an old monk dressed in modest cotton clothes decided to sit in an unpretentious wooden chair. The two Monks, a chair and an easy chair, fuse the everyday life filled with work and contemplation. The collection is supplemented with low tables, a dining room table and a bar stool.
