Inspired by the traditional milking stools used by shepherds in the Alps, the Tabouret Berger stool was designed in 1961 by Charlotte Perriand. Perriand designed pieces that were meant to be comfortably used and enjoyed in a space; the Berger stool does just that. These stools can be used alone as additional seating or combined into groupings for a stunning effect. Constructed of solid wood, it features a thick round ergonomic seat with a concave center and is supported by three hand turned legs. The Tabouret Stools have become enduring icons of the modern design movement and now produced by Cassina who continues the fine craftsmanship true to the original.
