Bender stool by blocher partners

A stool as easy and secure as a champagne closure
Our seating furniture should be just as simple and functional as the wire safety of a champagne cork, without any additional connecting elements. Only the material-specific properties ensure its statics. The functional principle uses the self-tensioning of the round steel to connect the seat surface to the frame. Bent open by hand the seat is “clamped” into the recess provided for this purpose. The stool is of course also stackable. Due to the dimensions and inclination of the legs it is possible to stack the stool almost infinitely.

To replace the seat, e.g. with a padded or textile-covered module, the frame is stretched so that the panel can be removed. The tension of the frame and the depth of the seat are calculated so that both elements form a safe unit.
