About this item

Walter Knoll ‘Turtle’ bar stools by PearsonLloyd, set of four

Design Year: 2005
Designer: Luke Pearson, Tom Lloyd - renowned London design team
Maker: Walter Knoll

These sleek, compact bar stools have a hard outer shell (Turtle ) that gives support to the inner upholstered seat. A hard shine separates the bucket from the soft upholstery. The aluminum base is sturdy and perfectly proportioned with a smart oval footrest for comfort. Breathtakingly sweeping lines.

PearsonLloyd wanted to re-visit the plastic shell chair; an archetype it felt had been neglected, following the iconic Tulip chair by Eero Saarinen, the plastic side chair by Charles and Ray Eames and the Panton chair by Verner Panton. The Turtle chair’s design comprises a series of parts that are made and assembled in a way typical of car seat production: an inner shell is vacuum formed, and overmoulded with PU foam. Textile is stretched over the foam and stapled to the inner shell. This unit is then nestled into a vacuum formed high gloss acrylic shell with a lower back, revealing the textile on the inner shell and giving it a clean, faultless edge. The formal interplay between the soft upholstery and glossy shell gives the chair a very distinct graphic.

Cream leather. Matte polished chrome-plated aluminium swivel base with foot rest.
