The 1.3 Bar Stool High, designed by Kihyun Kim for Zeitraum, is a compact and lightweight stool made in solid oak or American walnut. The thin profile of the seat provide the impression that the stool is floating on air. In fact, the original prototype of the chair belonging to this same 1.3 collection, which was made in balsam wood, weighed only 1.3 kg, hence the name. The compact frame, small footprint and elegant simplicity of the 1.3 Bar Stool High makes it ideal for use in busy spaces such as cafes and restaurants and also in small living spaces at home. The stool is part of the 1.3 Collection which comprises a Chair, a Bar Stool High and a Bar Stool Low.
