For the design of Tabouret Haut Jean Prouvé drew on a traditional type of bar stool that is still popular 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, this increases the rigidity of the construction & serves as a comfortable footrest. Prouvé's 1942 interpretation of this classic type is distinguished by its simple, unpretentious appearance, lucid construction and harmonious proportions.
