Pion Stool

Price On Application

Pion is a series of elegant and versatile tables and stools designed by Ionna Vautrin for Sancal. The design is inspired by a chess set, with the queens and kings represented by the dining and conference tables. Flexible enough to be used in a range of situations, from a meeting room to a restaurant or living room, they command attention wherever they are placed. Rooks, bishops and knights can all find their analogies within a legion of occasional tables. And yet, the humble pawn, the stool, should not be overlooked. Small and robust, its leather seat has been carefully tanned to match the colour of the lacquered base. Used in concert, or as separate pieces, the Pion adds a touch of brilliance to any scenario. The finishes play with contrasts: a high gloss lacquered base can be combined with Emperador Gold marble, wood or leather in a carefully curated selection of configurations. 

The stool is available in various colour options: MDF with a high gloss lacquer in Ice, Tobacco, Mustard, Olive, Peach, Sky-Blue, Shadow or quarzite with matching leather seat. For more information on the available materials and finishes please refer to the Product Tech Sheet and the various Sancal Materials and Finishes Catalogues in the Features tab under Additional Information.

The Pion Collection comprises stools and tables in various sizes.
Pion is also part of Sancal's Enigma Collection.

After graduating from the Nantes design school, Ionna Vautrin worked with prestigious companies like shoemaker Camper and the acclaimed design studio Ronon & Erwan Bouroullec. She received the Grand Prize for a piece commissioned by the city of Paris in 2011 and went on to found her own studio – working with some of the sector’s most important companies, such as Industreal, Lexon, Wallpaper, Foscarini, Moustache and Bosa – Sancal being the latest member of her collection. In only a few years, Ionna has become a rising star in French design. The company fell in love with her interesting ideas for Foscarini, although the Pion tables are now the new favourites.
