Much more than work furniture. Danish cobbler stool.
Its predecessors were three-leggedmilking stools with a simple, semi-circularseat. Beginning in the 17th century,Danish “Clog makers” started usingthis pragmatic stool. Because these individualshad to spend the entire daysitting on it, they equipped it with anappropriately shaped seat pan that madesitting on the stool significantly morecomfortable. Our producer, a Danishcompany comprised of three individuals,manufactures this particular cobblerstool that offers an unprecedentedlevel of sitting comfort, by employingthe original template from the productionyear 1936 and carrying out productionin 23 work stages. The constructionmay look simple, but it is technicallydemanding, when it is executed insuch an accurate and precise manner,as is the case with this stool. The entireprecision manufacturing and the finalsanding are done by hand. The seatpan is formed from a single, 6–8 cmthick piece of massive beechwood witha diameter of around 40 cm; the threechair legs are glued into the seat panand additionally furnished with stabilizingtraverses. The unconventional, lateralarrangement of the front legs is typicalfor this type of stool; the frontcross traverse runs parallel to the frontedge of the seat pan and serves simultaneouslyas a supporting footrest. Thisallowed the shoemakers a work posturein which nothing disruptive stood infront of the stool. The small one has theseat height of a chair, the large one thatof a work stool for the workbench; butboth are not fixed during use and provethemselves, in living quarters, to be remarkablyversatile and comfortable.
