The Danish manufacturer Hay invited the designer brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to create a furniture collection for the renovated University of Copenhagen (KUA). The result was the Copenhague series, which consists of a chair, a bar stool and diverse tables.
Hay and the Bouroullecs tried to design furniture for an educational institution which, with its form and identity, is clearly part of our time and meets the needs of a university. Therefore, the Copenhague Bar Stool is very functional, but without being too serious in its expression.
It was also a concern for the two designers to free themselves from the institutional and bureaucratic expression of traditional furniture and to design objects of greater originality and a more attractive appearance. Hay manufactures the Copenhague barstool out of different woods. Other variants are available.
