For the design of Tabouret Haut, Jean Prouvé drew on a traditional type of bar stool that is still in common use today: a thin round seat 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, increasing the rigidity of the construction and also serving as a comfortable footrest. Prouvé’s interpretation of this classic type is distinguished by its simple, unpretentious appearance, lucid construction and harmonious proportions.
Seat Diameter: 15"
Seat and legs are solid oak, natural or with a dark stain, each with a clear protective lacquer finish. Footrest is chrome-plated tubular steel with an anti-skid surface.
Designed by Jean Prouvé in 1942 for Vitra.

Jean Prouvé, who regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.
