Jean Stool

c. 2010

by Stefan Diez
for e15

The Jean stool’s distinc­tive seat features a slight, back­ward cant that helps to keep the sitter firmly in the stool opposed to the slip­ping and sliding that can often occur when one uses a stool with a curved wooden seat. Each Jean stool size features a wooden hori­zon­tal footrest that also func­tions as a stabi­liz­ing brace for the stool.

Stefan Diez

Germany (1971)

The craftsmanship of carpentry profoundly influences Stefan Diez's work. Born in 1971 in Freisin, Germany, the industrial designer grew up in a household of 4th generation carpenters. He spent three years as a cabinet maker before attending the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, where he studied under Richard Sapper. In 2002, he founded his studio, and by 2008 created DIEZ OFFICE. Diez became a professor of industrial design at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe in 2007, teaching there until 2014. He then joined the School of Industrial Design Lund, Sweden in 2015 and continued to teach as the head of Industrial Design ID1 at Die Angewandte in Vienna. Diez’s industrial design work includes furniture, tableware, and home accessories. He often collaborates with various manufacturers including e15, Emu, HAY, Rosenthal, Thonet, Vibia, Wagner, and Wilkhahn.
