It has eight legs, a round seat made of wood, it is a welcome additional chair and it is stackable. Everyone knows it: the archetype, three-legged stool. Normann Copenhagen presents its own interpretation of it with “Tap”.
Most of us own a stool sometime of our lives. But how often is its design considered to be a matter of fact? To re-interpret something so simple like a stool, was what moved Normann Copenhagen to produce Tap. The designer Simon Legald accepted the challenge and added original materials and some details to the stool we all know. This is how he achieved in creating a beautiful and also pretty design in between of handicraft and industry.
Familiar and still different
Tap is surprising, different and still familiar. A stackable stool with an individual character. Normann Copenhagen used weightless hard foam for the production of the seat. This one is flexible and it has a closed surface – just like caoutchouc. This is how Tap acts dirt-repellent, resistant and easily cleanable.
The monocast seat is comfortable and it is responsible for the inviting appearance of the stool, which is also known from cushioned furniture. The connection between the three legs and the seat is an integrating part of the design. Tap is also a visual unity when it is observed from its side, because of that connection.
