The bar stool is a modern take on the iconic all-wood chair that reflects its classic Scandinavian design heritage.

With seamless integration of the back and seat rendered in wood, the Nerd Chair is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. With its unique yet simple Scandinavian look, the Nerd Chair won the Muuto Talent Award in 2011. The Bar Stool edition of the chair is a quirky yet sleek take on the conventional bar stool, destined to look grand at your bar, restaurant, hotel or kitchen.

David Geckeler

DAVID GECKELER studied industrial design in Berlin and Copenhagen. Currently he is exploring the wider area of industrial design; focusing on furniture, interior, tableware & lighting. His chair design NERD was honoured by Beckers International Design Award 2011 and is the winner of the Muuto Talent Award 2012.

“My way of design is affected by an attentive and analytical view on the environment. The principles I'd like in my objects are simplicity, detail-orientation and a pinch of courageous design language. The excitement during the creation process goes along with a wish for a sensible interaction between the future owner and the object. To me, after a first impression, it is the long-standing fascination for an object or product that consitutes good design.”

“To me, Nordic design is unique in terms of tradition well approved quality. It is fascinating to see how a new generation of young designers transform this heritage. A high degree of respect and appreciation towards this specific design with its traditional background is the perfect foundation to leverage Nordic design into the next generation.”

In fact, our name Muuto, inspired by the Finnish word muutos, means new perspective.
