The Evolution of the Simple Stool

With the evolution of the kitchen environment, structured to include work and conversation islands as well as increasingly functional and high-performance areas, the stool has become one of the protagonists of the living area of the home, coordinated with its furnishings and accessories. Here, are three contemporary designs by Bross that elevate the simple to stool to its rightful place as object of design.

This modern stool can have a high or low backrest, wooden or metal frame, with or without padding, as well as different heights available depending on the top to which it is to be placed. Also ideal for hospitality environments, Bross offers different versions with the WAM, Break and Path collections.

Versions of the Stool

The WAM stool, part of the collection designed by Marco Zito, is created by joining two upholstered parts, which can be covered with the same finish or customised in contrast. The metal structure, painted black, supports and holds the volumes for a seat height of 68 or 78 cm, visually interrupted on the front by a practical footrest consisting of a thin plate in the same material.

The front of the backrest of Break’s contemporary stool, designed by Enzo Berti, is the element that characterises its aesthetics: upholstered in leather or fabric, it is punctuated by thin decorative vertical stitching, tone on tone, which gives it a contemporary quilted effect. The shape of the shell is sinuous and enveloping and the legs are in natural beech wood, stained or matt lacquered, with circular footrests on all four sides in satin chrome or bronze finish metal.

A contemporary stool design and balanced proportions identify the Path stool, designed for Bross by Carlesi Tonelli. The seat, in leather or fabric, is created by the combination of a lower profile in wood and light padding that perfectly follows the shape, while the open backrest is ergonomic and comfortable. The structure, available in two heights, is in natural beech, stained or matt lacquered, with footrest in bronze finish metal.
