There isn’t a standardised version of this stool. The unique design of Wilkhahn’s PrintStool One (design: Thorsten Franck) is the result of innovative production technology: all PrintStool types are made via 3D printing technology that uses lignin, which is a fully biodegradable printing material. Customers play a part in the design of their stool and choose the colour, form and surface structure of the body themselves. The seat section is then painstakingly upholstered by hand and covered with fine vegetable-tanned leather. The PrintStool One is ushering in a new chapter in furniture history – it’s a real collector’s item!

The 500 limited edition stools are available in two seating heights, five patterns (origami, cube, wave, sine, pyramid) and six colours plus three different colours of leather. Each model is supplied with a numbered certificate.

Of the 500 stools in the limited edition, 150 are still available.

In 2017, the PrintStool won first prize in the bdia.ausgesucht! competition. (DE)
