First introduced in 1948, Florence Knoll’s Model 75 stacking stool was an instantly popular addition to what was then still a small catalog of furnishings from Knoll Associates.
Florence based the compact design on earlier studies using steel rods at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
The design remained in production until 1966 and was only briefly reproduced in 1981 for the Innovative Furniture in America exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York.
The Model 75 stool is now reintroduced as the Hairpin™ Stacking Table, which is made of a painted steel base and a laminate top, and can stack up to five tables.
The table is an affordable piece of timeless design that adds an eclectic, whimsical element to any space.
