Space Copenhagen designed the High Stool with a new backrest — hence the name High Stool Backrest — which builds on High Stool’s beautifully fluid, sculptural and archetypal character, adding a generously rounded backrest for a heightened sense of comfort. The backrest itself is upholstered in soft durable leather and is fully supportive and comfortable so that it outweighs the need for armrests.
When designing High Stool Backrest made from sustainably sourced wood, Space Copenhagen explored classic, simple and sculptural motifs. The collection is available in solid oak or beech wood with a backrest steam bent in veneer. Perfect for both residential and hospitality use.
The wood is sustainably sourced from well-managed forests, honouring the UN Sustainable Development Goals of protecting “Life on Land” (SDGs 15) and “Responsible Consumption and Production” (SDGs 12) while supporting “Partnership for the Goals” (SDGs 17)
Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, Space Copenhagen is a design studio working across multiple disciplines from furniture, lighting and refined objects, to art installations, art direction and interior design for private homes, hotels and restaurants all over the world.
The ambition is to forge new paths by balancing opposites — classic and modern, industrial and organic, sculptural and minimal, light and shade. Duality and contrast. Curiosity as a fundamental human condition.
The studio’s intuitive approach embodies designs that are distinctively shaped by the given circumstances, functional needs, and a fundamental interest in human behavior. It is a sense of and belief in slow aesthetic that centers quality and longevity.
Space Copenhagen has created lauded furniture pieces for some of the world’s leading manufacturers and continuously substantiates their roster of high-end interiors at an international level, following, among others, their award-winning design for 11 Howard hotel in New York and acclaimed destination restaurants Geranium and Noma in Copenhagen.
