SB bar stools

Martin Visser   |  1960

The SB bar stools are derived from the dining chairs designed by Martin Visser in 1960. This addition allows for a perfect combination between sitting high and low. Three variants are available: wicker upholstery (SB 05), saddle leather (SB 06) and fabric (SB 07). The barstool has a slim round tube frame and is available in black epoxy (RAL 9005) or brushed matt chrome.

SB 05 in wicker
The SB 05 barstool has a wicker seat plus back, a natural material made from the solid core of peeled rattan stems. Wicker weaving is carried out by local, specialised professionals. Wicker that is exposed to light discolours over time. The resulting shades of colour increasingly bring the wickerwork to life.

SB 06 in saddle leather
The SB 06 is available in three leather colours: natural, dark brown and black. The strong harness leather requires processing craftsmanship and has the natural ability to stretch through use. Therefore, the cover on the underside of the seat has a leather lace with which the seat can be tightened. A functional detail that makes this timeless barstool so special. Rigid leather is a natural product and discolours through use and under the influence of light. The latter is especially applicable to natural harness leather and provides a characteristic and lively image.

SB 07 in fabric or leather
The SB 07 upholstered barstool is available in any fabric or leather type. Due to the many possibilities in upholstery and colours, this version can be completely matched with the interior.
