The KK87830 Propeller Stool is an exercise in mathematical construction, and expresses Kaare Klint’s vision of the ideal fold, with the two intersecting, propeller-shaped legs forming a perfectly round rod when folded flat.

Multi-functionality and sophisticated form

The KK87830 Propeller Stool by Kaare Klint was initially thought to be too complex to put into production. The 1930 design quickly attracted attention, however, and was featured as a concept in several design books. A prototype was created in 1956 for the major memorial exhibition for Klint at the Danish Museum of Art and Design, and the design went into production in 1962, eight years after Klint’s death. In 1964, the Propeller Stool was presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker’s Guild Exhibition, organized by Klint’s son, Naur Klint. The idea of a folding stool was certainly not new; the concept existed as early as the Bronze Age. Klint, however, refined and optimized it, adding the innovative propeller element. The Propeller Stool is manufactured using wood with long, strong fibers that help support the slim, sophisticated construction. The stool seat is available in canvas or leather. The optional KK87831 Propeller Tray transforms the stool into a low table.
