Bönan bar stool has derived its design from the Vågspel wastebasket. It has a comfortable padded seat and legs in chrome, or black or silver grey powder-coating. The bar stool’s bean-shaped seat determines the way most men and women choose to sit on it. Men generally sit astride the stool, using it like a saddle, while women generally choose to sit longways, giving a broader seat. The Bönan bar stool indicates that men and women use furniture in different ways – something that has never previously been noted in furniture design. Design: Sandin & Bülow, 1997.
