Flat High stool

In the FLAT collection, the aluminium structure is reduced to the minimum. This collection of outdoor furniture is made up of different types of pieces of furniture, inspired by simple geometric and organic shapes; an essential design that combines functionality and aesthetics with elegance and discretion.


The FLAT high stool is another option to choose from. It is a designer stool made of welded thermo-lacquered aluminium sections and fully recyclable polyethylene that you can customize.


More than just an outdoor stool, it can be combined with each of the pieces from the FLAT collection and with a wide variety of both indoor and outdoor tables, as your prefer.


The FLAT high stool is an exclusive design by Mario Ruiz for GANDIABLASCO.
