It has three legs, a round wooden seat, is a welcome additional place to sit and can be stacked. Everyone knows it: the archetypal, three-legged stool. With Tap, Normann Copenhagen presents his own interpretation of this.
Most people will have a stool in their home at some point in their life. But how often is its design taken for granted? Reinterpreting something as simple as a stool was the starting point for Normann Copenhagen when designing Tap. Designer Simon Legald accepted the challenge and breathed new life into the stool using original materials and details. In doing so, he created both a practical and beautiful design caught between craftsmanship and industry.
Familiar yet different
Tap is surprising and different, yet familiar. It is a stackable stool with its own unique character. Normann Copenhagen processed a lightweight hard foam to make the seat, which - just like rubber - has a flexible, closed surface. This makes Tap dirt-repellent, durable and easy to clean.
The moulded-cast seat ensures good seating comfort and gives the stool an inviting look, which is also seen in upholstered furniture. The connection between the three chair legs and the seat is an integral part of the design. In doing so, Tap also presents itself as an visual unit.
