This Zeb Stool, by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby for Vitra, was designed to fulfil the specific purpose of a bar stool: every individual component is precisely developed in the best quality for its designated function.
All of its parts seat and swivel mount made of die-cast aluminium, powder-coated column sleeve, chrome-plated gas spring, footrest and base plate are precisely coordinated down to the smallest details. As a result they not only serve their individual purpose, but are joined together in an elegant, unified whole of the highest quality.
The name "Zeb" refers to Zebedee, the twirling jack-in-the-box character from the BBC childrens television series 'The Magic Roundabout'. The bar stool has a height-adjustable swivel seat. The sleeve of the column comes in various colours, (chrome, powder coated black, basalt and chocolate as well a gloss mint) and the round seat is also available in different versions: in wood, covered in leather (with thin padding) or with a "soft", more padded upholstered seat.
Each have a standard base dimeter of 45cm with the following variations:
Wood : H: 78cm; Seat Ø : 37.5cm
Leather : 80cm; Seat Ø: 39.5cm
Soft : H: 85cm; Seat Ø : 38cm
