High noon at Päffgen: The Kya barstool from young furniture brand Frei Frau is more than just an innovative solution for a typical pub stool. According to its designers Eva Paster and Michael Geldmacher (Neuland), it looks just as much at home in the leather-dominated setting of a swish historic hotel bar as it does in the understated clarity of an urban bar or even a modern private interior. You can either sit on it the traditional way or as if it were a saddle. It invites the user to change position and play with the different possibilities. A hefty double seam holds the individual pieces of leather together. Kya is designed to age with dignity, acquiring a patina as the years pass. With increasing age, the stool is meant to tell of the thousands of miles its various riders have spent astride it at the bars of this world – hopefully in line with the motto: change your horse, not your saddle!
