Tripod Bar Stool

Thom Fougere Tripod Bar Stool EQ3 Assembly 

The Assembly Bar Stool is an exercise in reduction and ergonomics. Like any surface meant for seating, the necessity of comfort is of the highest importance. A stool that can satisfy bar height and counter height seating levels tries to achieve comfort from a mid, to full standing height. The seat and foot step help achieve this gesture in a state of relaxation. Subtle gestures and open-ended functionality are elements that contribute to much of my practice. The stripped down form lends itself to a purely functional interaction, the structure of the stool itself has been reduced to only it’s necessary components - seat, foot stand, and three legs for stability. However, the form created with the tripod legs and the rounded connection where the foot step meets the legs sculptural form.

Tripod Stool, EQ3, 2015

Developed in counter and bar seating heights for the EQ3 Assembly capsule collection.
