Staying true to a passion for superb seating: at the Milan furniture fair, the Salone del Mobile, Flötotto celebrated PRO collection with a hall of fame at the company’s exhibition stand, designed by Konstantin Grcic. The exhibition featured the new PRO STOOL line, a collection of six different stools, also designed by Grcic.
“We have quite literally ‘rounded up’ the theme by complementing our chair programme with a new collection of stools,” says CEO Frederik Flötotto.
The stool’s most striking feature is the special shape of its seat: it’s not, strictly speaking, round, rather it has the form of a dish turned upside down. The oval shape suggests the position in which the user is supposed to sit on the stool. However, there is no one correct position, rather the seat encourages the user to change position and thus promotes dynamic sitting.
The designs in the PRO STOOL collection come with a fourlegged frame and are available with three different seat heights (46, 64 and 77cm). Stackable and available with or without backrest, the stools can be used in offices, kitchens and bistros, at counters, in the bathroom or in doctor’s practices.
The new stool family also includes a height-adjustable swivel stool with castors. Not least due to the continuous and intensive collaboration between Flötotto and designer Konstantin Grcic, the PRO collection now represents a large and versatile range of seats and frames, which – far beyond its initially targeted application in educational institutions – has also established itself in the home and contract sectors.
“Last year, together with Konstantin Grcic, we thoroughly revised the entire collection. And we didn’t opt for the most practical and easiest way, but for the best one,” explains Frederik Flötotto.
