Pair of Propeller Stools in Fumed Ash with Linen Seats by Kaare Klint

Quantity

About

Offered by Vance Trimble, Pair of Propeller Stools in Fumed Ash with Linen Seats by Kaare Klint. Kaare designed this stool in 1930. His intention was for the legs to be cut-out of a single round piece of wood. A prototype was made in 1956, but due to the complexity of the fabrication, it was not put into production until 1962. The stool is made of ash, which has long fibers, making the wood extremely strong and resistant. The propeller-shaped legs give the stool its name. Ingenious in its simplicity, when closed, it is completely collapsible, its legs folding into a perfect cylinder; when open, the lines perfectly and beautifully illustrate the stool’s function and name. An early prototype is in the Danish Museum of art and design, Copenhagen.
