Quirky, unique and comfortable – just like the entire prize-winning 404 family – Thonet presents the three-legged 404 H barstool by Stefan Diez with its distinctive, saddle-like seat. Sit down and experience the unexpected yet pleasant bounce. The elevation of the rear part of the seat provides overall support, especially for the lower back. The base ring features a slip-resistant and non-abrasive border. The seat is completely embedded in the legs, which provides the necessary stability. This barstool is produced entirely from molded plywood, including beech.
