Have a seat, meet chool

Half chair/half stool – the best of both and a fresh approach to seating. We’ve gone back to the drawing board and combined active design with functionality, a concept currently unseen in the furniture market, or by anyone else for that matter.

So what’s the big idea you ask? Well, at rest chool modestly adopts the form and functional benefits of a stool, able to be conveniently stowed under tables and desks. As someone sits down the entire pod smoothly descends a few inches to standard seating height. This  simultaneously activates a mechanism that raises a full size backrest.

And if that isn’t delightful enough, when you eventually decide to get up and walk away, chool quietly and obediently returns to its resting stool form – creating a clean, clear skyline in its surrounding environment.

Chool can also be locked in any position between chair to stool at the push of a button. It requires no external power to operate, purely relying on the mass of a friendly sitter to work its magic.

Like chool’s design and structure, it’s a strong, long lasting and simple idea with the power to not only change the way you sit, but the way you decorate, design and live.

You probably need to see it to believe it and we think that the best way to gain an understanding of how it operates is to have a look yourself.

Sit down, stand out – chool key features

Chool is a product that, in one swift movement, can entirely change your space. In stool mode chool is quiet and unassuming (even when its unique design attracts attention).

However, the treat happens when you, your clients, guests or friends decide to have a sit down and then chool comes to life, instantly stealing the limelight and creating a talking point. It’s not often you find people queuing up to sit down.

Chool lead designer, James Lucas understood that the most important feature of any seat is its ability to stand on its own four legs and fully support the human figure.  It was also of utmost importance to James that chool looks great in both of its states. James was adamant that he would not compromise anything in the design of chool.

James’ aim was to design a seat that had it all – comfort, style, functionality and a little bit of fun thrown in for good measure.

One of a kind

From the outset, our designer wanted to create a product that could be made individual to each and every customer.

Therefore he made sure not to limit the design of chool to just one or two variations.

Currently there are eight different models in chool’s range and this number is growing all the time.

To explore the range of the different models just click on the image.

Contemporary retro

The splicing together of two styles, a union of clinical precision and organic curves and materials results in a warm, almost living piece sporting a contemporary retro feel.
