This three-legged stool is crafted in oak and fitted with a choice of seats.
The wicker seat is woven from natural reed fibres and integrated into the frame to sit level with the surface. The solid oak version has a smooth disc in the frame that forms a solid seat. Both versions are available in oiled oak or smoked oak, providing a choice of blond wood or dark wood. Part of the stool’s character is formed by the relationship between natural materials and craft techniques, which make each stool one-of-a-kind. The legs rise to the full height of the seat, creating a simple, yet striking, profile as they sit alongside the frame rather than underneath it. Lightweight, stackable and easy to store, Pal is always available when additional seating is required.
