Why is it Special?
Copenhague is a furniture series designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec especially for the new buildings at the University of Copenhagen. In addition to a homely and welcoming expression, functional furniture qualities such as stackability, durability and ease of cleaning were important design requirements for the university. The Bouroullec brothers approach the task by merging design history with modern technology in an idiom with a strong and independent appearance in a broad and versatile series that embraces both public and private environments.
The barstool is the uncomplicated extension of the Copenhague Chair design. Here, the seat of the chair has been doubled up and mirrored and fitted with extra long legs. Like the rest of the series, the Copenhague Barstool is available in natural or stained wood and with or without a padded seat. The padded seat gives the barstool a more coherent and sensuous expression – and illustrates that with a strong idea, the potential for variation is unlimited.
