Set of three heavy oak Brutalist bar stools, with great natural expression. The material they are made of is light oak, but they have a pine wood color.
These stools with its characteristic ‘primitive’ angular shapes strongly reminds at the work of French Designer Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret and Rainer Daumiller. There are no decorative elements, all attention is focused on the appearance of the natural wood. Funny shaped set of midcentury Brutalist high stools in a fantastic and very solid condition.

The term ‘Brutalism’ ( derives from the French word brut, meaning raw ) was coined to describe an architectural movement that emerged in the fifties of the 20th century. It has been adopted by the realms of art and design to refer to expressive, attention grabbing ‘naive’ creations made of rough, high relief materials that forms a contrast with the polished, smooth and sophisticated ( related artists are Paul Evans, Henrik Horst and Paul Kingma ).
