Looking at the equestrian form of the Kya kitchen stool, it isn’t hard to see where Eva Paster and Michael Geldmacher of the Neuland design duo got their inspiration from. The exciting thing about transposing the shape of a saddle onto a kitchen stool is that it allows the person sitting on it to change position, from the time-honored perch to a real rider’s straddle; a welcome side effect of this variability is that it is also good for the back.
To underline the horse-riding heritage of the model, the leather seat is composed of three individual sections of leather joined using distinctive double-stitching underlining the saddle look. Available in three heights as a bar-stool, kitchen stool, and stool seat, Kya comes either on a wooden or a steel frame. The charm of the vibrant material and artisan workmanship makes the Kya at home in a hotel bar, urban club or modern home.
