The robust New Steel stool 2014 can also be used as coffee table or book holder, no-screw, no-glue system, by London based designers Gautier Pelegrin and Vincent Taïani of studio Noon.
The timeless mid 1930’s Nicolle chair and stool designed by French craftsman Jérôme Lepert and manufactured from the company of Paul Henry Nicolle. Originally designed as a robust, ergonomic and stackable seat for industry workers, Nicolle became very popular during the 1950’s French factories and workshops.
These days the range is still in production by Nicolle company and they claim to apply the same steel stamping and welding techniques, as were used for the original. The iconic whale tail backrest is always removable and the seats available in 4 heights. New addition is an optional leather seat pad (last image). Comes galvanized or in any RAL color.
