Product information

Vitra Tabouret Haut stool.

A timeless and beautiful design by Jean Prouvé, from 1941

Vitra's Tabouret Haut is a sleek wooden bar stool designed by French designer Jean Prouvé in 1942. Tabouret Haut consists of a thin, round oak seat, four angled legs and a chrome-plated steel ring, which stabilizes the structure and also acts as a pleasant footrest. Tabouret Haut's timeless, uncomplicated design will easily find its place in many types of spaces and interiors.

The construction of the Tabouret clearly illustrates the basic principles of the construction of Jean Prouvé. As an engineer, he loved to visualize the structural and supporting elements of his furniture. Here you can see four powerful legs held by a central metal element.

Seat & base are made of solid wood in a natural oak, or smoked oak.
Connecting element: chromed steel
Dimensions Ø 60 x H77.5 cm seat 38 Ø

For your information: the stool is best suited for 110 cm high surfaces.

About the designer:

Jean Prouvé completed his training as a metalworker before opening his own workshop in Nancy in 1924. In the following years he created numerous furniture designs and in 1947 Prouvé founded his own factory. Due to disagreements with the majority shareholders, he left the company in 1953. In the following decades, Prouvé served as a consulting engineer on a number of important architectural projects in Paris.

He left his mark on architectural history again in 1971, when he was instrumental in the selection of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers' design for the Center Pompidou as chairman of the competition jury. Prouvé's work encompasses a wide variety of objects, from a letter opener to door and window hardware, from lighting and furniture to facade elements and prefabricated houses, from modular building systems to large exhibition structures - essentially almost anything suitable for industrial production methods.
