    Dimensions

    Taking cues from the aesthetic principles of Modernism and pragmatic considerations of the height-adjustable stools manufactured for sewing professionals in the mid-century era, the Piton™ Stool and Table are equally well suited for industrial tasks and domestic settings.

    The geometric, elementary framework of the pieces is an interpretation of the familiar tripod structure; the conical base, unified by two concentric rings, guards against the potential for imbalance caused by an uneven floor, equally distributing weight so as to counteract the tendency of the stool's three-legged counterpart to wobble. The die-cast material is equally resilient to abrasions and dents, having been cast from the same material used for the foot of the Barber Osgerby Lounge Collection.
