Design : Cees Braakman (1953)

After the Second World War, when construction materials were in short supply, steel wire proved to be a cheap, functional and strong means of making chairs. Living rooms tended to be small and the transparent chair needed less space than traditional furniture. The chairs were a great success and fashionable among young families, who considered them a modern, rebellious statement.

Stool KM05 was one of the first stools to be entirely fabricated from steel wire. The stool is available in three heights: table (45cm), kitchen (63 cm) and bar (70cm). Its wire design gives the stool a spatial effect and the cushion ensures a comfortable sitting experience.

The materials used for the cushion are a fine selection of Kvadrat fabrics (Denmark), Steelcut Trio 2 series. This fabric is very durable (100.000 Martindale) and not easy to change color by time (ISO 5-7).
