Introducing Stool Nº1

As you may know, Manual designs objects that celebrate slowness. We strive to create products that encourage you to slow down and appreciate the moment. For our latest design we wanted to focus on the stool—our favorite form of seating. What's slower than sitting?


We love stools because they're both structured and architectural—yet at the same time informal and flexible. Whether it's reading a paper and sipping coffee at your breakfast counter, pulling up a stool at your local watering hole, or having a conversation over a glass of wine—the stool is always a welcome perch.


Stool Nº1 offers uncluttered aesthetics and a visual lightness to your home. A descendant of the iconic "hairpin" design, the gracefully contoured steel frame plays with lines and curves to imply corners and edges. Its strength and quality USA-made construction will ensure years of everyday use.


Stool Nº1 is made in the USA and available in multiple finishes and colors, as well as three heights—seat, counter, and bar. Stool Nº1 is funding on Kickstarter in the month of August—click through to learn more and pre-order your own set!
