Taburet is a design that demands absolute precision. Made with uncompromising craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail, Cecilie Manz’s latest design for Fritz Hansen profiles her journey as a designer, demonstrated in purist lines pared back to their essence, and refined craft.
The aesthetically compelling Taburet is crafted in FSCTM-certified solid wood with visible grain. Carefully shaped into elliptical forms offset by angular lines that make it an intriguing and attractive addition to lounge and dining spaces, its subtly concaved seat ensures a restful seating position, while it is the attention to detail that sets Taburet apart from its peers: seamless joints, perfectly balanced dimensions and meticulously aligned grain patterns.
Suited for use as an occasional side table as well as a stool, the design is the result of Manz’s extensive studies of the typology. Taburet has been refined over time, utilising traditional cabinetmaking skills to create a modern and functional piece with a multitude of uses.
Taburet is offered in two wood versions: Oiled Pine or Oiled Cherry, each displaying unique grain patterns.
