General Information

Much More Than Work Furniture. Danish Cobbler Stool.

Its predecessors were three-legged milking stools with a simple, semi-circular seat. In the 17th century, Danish "Clog makers" started using this pragmatic stool. Because they had to spend the entire day sitting on it, they equipped it with an appropriately shaped seat pan that made sitting on the stool significantly more comfortable. Our producer, a small Danish company, comprised of three, manufactures this particular cobbler stool that offers an unprecedented level of sitting comfort. They employ the original template from the production year 1936 and carry it out in 23 work steps. The construction may look simple, but is technically rather demanding, when executed in such an accurate and precise manner. The entire process of precision manufacturing and the final sanding are done by hand. The seat pan is formed from a single, 6–8 cm thick piece of massive beechwood with a diameter of around 40 cm; the three chair legs are glued into the seat pan and additionally furnished with stabilizing traverses. The unconventional, lateral arrangement of the front legs is typical for this type of stool. The anterior cross traverse runs parallel to the front edge of the seat pan and serves simultaneously as a supporting footrest. This design allowed the shoemakers a work posture with nothing in the way in front of the stool. Very versatile in use, such stools have proved themselves a comfortable alternative broadening the seating capacity in living quarters.
