Prouvé Tabouret Haut Bar Stool
For the design of Tabouret Haut, Jean Prouvé drew on a traditional type of bar stool: 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.
