This lifeguard chair was inspired by the experience of doing lengths and getting out of a swimming pool. The designer describes the sense of security offered by the ladder on the edge, providing an easy escape from the water when necessary. This peace of mind and comfort felt about a simple object is carried over into an item of a very different sort.
This dry land stool comprises a tubular metal structure with a pair of handles and two rungs on one side. A pale wooden platform provides a place to rest, and a gently curving lip references the smooth deck of a natatorium. The Yoin Design Pool Chair has character, yet it's still minimalist, making it easy to incorporate into a wide range of rooms.
