The Lovely Light Hans Stool Poses On its Tippy Toes

It only seems appropriate to compare the Hans Stool to a ballerina. The sweet little seat stands upon points at the ends of its tapering legs to make minimal contact with the floor.

Florian Saul crowned this light-footed piece aptly with a lightweight cork material. The circular seat is thick enough for the substance to remain stiff, all the while offering comfort for the sitter. Four supports flare out from underneath, seeming to curtsy before its user.

An asymmetrical chair in the series appears to lunge with one leg, really reinforcing this idea of dance. Beautiful harmony is struck between the wood and the cork materials, even if the Hans Stools might appear to be challenging their structural balance.
