This is the outdoor stool in our 356 collection, a model that can also be used as a side table or to complement the chaiselongue or the armchair in this same series. It has a very particular design, with a groove that runs all along one side of the stool. This ingenious detail can have many uses, e.g. to hold a glass, whether you are sitting on it or using it as a side table.
Its rounded shape and stylish curves reflect the same aerodynamic appearance as the rest of the items in the collection, inspired by the first Porsche 356 cars from the 1950s. A series of designs with a lot of personality, made from 100% recyclable polyethylene, which can be used to create a highly original space, especially if you choose a bold colour like pink or red.
With this multifunctional item you can also create an informal seating area around this other table in the 356 collection, which has the same height.
It could also be placed underneath another coffee table from a different collection. You could store these four extra seats in a square of the right dimensions and height for when you have guests. The rest of the time, they’re sure to come in handy as a footrest or side table; you’ll find all sorts of ways to use them!
And there’s no reason why you have to use them outside; you could also put them in your house.
Take advantage of the variety of available colours to make your outdoor area a colourful space. Use our colour chart to make sure your choice matches your colour scheme.

“There are good talent pools in Europe, and I think the level is improving more and more. Having a good cultural base is essential. So is knowing the work of the great industrial and graphic designers of the 20th century. It has served me a lot”.
