c 1965

The Round High Stool with cane seat was originally produced in Chandigarh in two main variants – one with a broader and more curved wooden crossbar and one with a narrower wooden crossbar. We prototyped the version with the narrow crossbar based on a commission from an L.A based interior designer.

Pierre Jeanneret and his team designed several models of stools for Chandigarh, especially for the Punjab University campus. This particular version was designed for the Science Department and made tall enough to function as lab stools.

Interestingly, we discovered another variant of the high stool in a government office in Chandigarh that has not been documented in any catalog or book on Chandigarh furniture. This version had extremely narrow crossbars and was taller than the two models that are documented.
