Objects of Design #7: Pilo Metal Stool

Kitchens need stools. It’s the room where people come together (and not just at parties) so there’s always the need for an extra chair to perch on. Or for a small child to stand on so they can reach to stir their cake mix. Or  to pull up to the table when there’s an extra guest for the pasta. And the other joy of a stool is that it doesn’t take up much room so it’s easy to store. Then, if you don’t need it in the kitchen it can double up a a little table for resting that cup of coffee or that glass of wine. Or by the bed for a book. See, the possibilities are endless. It’s not just kitchens, houses need stools.
