Loft Bar & Counter Stool
Thomas Bentzen for Muuto
“Being a natural extension of the Loft design, the Loft Bar Stool mixes the complementing opposites of robustness and elegance through materials—wood for the seat and back, metal for the frame—with a soft, industrial appeal. The bar stool has an archetypical look that gives a feeling of familiarity while the subtle details, such as its sturdy back legs, gives it a unique expression. Though having the comfort of a full seat and back, the bar stool comes with a small footprint thanks to its legs being positioned neatly under the seat, making the design a natural fit for all environments while providing maximum comfort to its user.” - Thomas Bentzen, Designer
As with its chair counterpart, the Loft Bar Stool by Danish designer Thomas Bentzen exemplifies honest, simple design. Using materials as an aesthetic touchpoint, the Loft Bar Stool is created with careful attentions to details through contrasting materials: here, its solid, powder coated steel base is offset with a warm plywood, shaped to accustom the body of its user.
In a nostalgic nod to industrial design, the bar stool’s cast frame—with larger back legs for added strength—is welded as a means of lending stability and durability to the design. Furthermore, visible screws enhance the crafted, engineered feel of the design.
Exploring the possibilities within material and form, the plywood seat and backrest of the Loft Bar Stool have been curved to bring forth proportions that aid the functional and sophisticated design to fit any setting with maximum comfort and a small footprint. The Loft Bar Stool comes in five different colors with textile upholstery available as made-to-order options. As an additional introduction, the Loft Chair will now also be available in textile upholstery versions as made-to-order designs.
