Design by Antonio Citterio with Toan Nguyen, 2002.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Spoon, the revolutionary bar stool, has slim, curved lines which bring to mind the outline of a spoon. The innovation of the project consists of, on one hand, the connection of the seat to the central leg by means of an elastic curve, able to resist the stresses and strains exerted by weight; and on the other hand, the introduction of a handle, inside the leg, to regulate the mechanism of the gas pump. Thus the height of the stool can be raised but the clean line of the whole is preserved.
Material(s): Smooth Batch-Dyed Polypropylene.
Dimensions: 22"W X 22"D X 21.5-29.5"SH
Model(s): KRT-4828 4828
