REVOLVER BAR STOOL / Story
HAY’s Revolver Bar Stool is positioned on a bearing mechanism that enables the seat and foot ring to rotate 360 degrees. The slim, slightly dished seat features curved edges for additional comfort, while the footrest provides support and the weighty base creates total stability. The rotating feature, while altering appearance, also lends a sense of the play to this functional design. Available in two heights and a choice of coatings, its versatile presence makes it suitable for a wide range of public and residential environments.
Leon Ransmeier is an American industrial designer who founded the design practise Ransmeier Inc., in New York in 2010. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, his work has been included in the permanent collection of the San Fransisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and the Corning Museum of Glass. Very much a hands-on designer, Ransmeier develops full size prototypes of all of his works and is a believer in the idea that “use follows form”. For HAY, Ransmeier has designed the Revolver Bar Stool, Revolver Stool, Revolver Table, Shortwave Dish Rack and Chops Toothbrush.
