An icon of experimental design and innovative production, the Wire Stool was originally designed by Cees Braakman in 1958. Now, almost sixty years later, it has been reintroduced by the original manufacturer, Pastoe. The stool’s unique construction was the result of the times; introduced shortly after the Second World War, construction materials were in short supply. The designer ingeniously translated this material scarcity into a new type of furniture made entirely of metal wire. His collection of wire furniture was one of the first uses of the material, which has become an iconic motif of mid-century design. The dynamic stool makes the perfect occasional seat around the home whether used at the desk or for additional seating when needed. Even when out of use, the Wire Stoolâs graphic lines and geometric form makes a sculptural appearance that exudes a sophisticated sense of modernity.
