Art Deco stool or ottoman in fabric and wood designed by Jindřich Halabala and manufactured by UP závody in the former Czechoslovakia, 1930s.
This elegant Art Deco stool was designed by Jindřich Halabala and manufactured by UP závody in the 1930s. Compared to other ottomans by the famous designer, this particular model stands out in its appearance by featuring its iconic ridged design. This particular stool was also recently restored and upholstered in premium cream fabric. Functionality in this stool arises through various functions, as you can simultaneously use it as an ottoman for your lounge chair or as a stool to sit on. By employing the designer’s aesthetic vocabulary and materials, this harmonious piece is unequaled in its appearance and is sure to add character to one’s interior and brighten up the space by adding a touch of style and elegance.
It is an iconic piece of Czechoslovakian furniture design, a classic example of the modernistic designs popular during the period, and a piece that has become a sought-after collector’s item. Today, Halabala’s designs can be found in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Museum of Art in Olomouc and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. This model exemplifies why Halabala’s work is considered to be a connection between innovative Czech Cubism from 1910, Art Deco from the early 1920s, and European modern art after the Second World War.
