Pantone Flight Stool


Pantone, the paint people, are offering a limited edition Flight Stool that resembles their industry–standard paint chips.

Each $549 stool is handmade from 10 sheets of birch plywood veneer, laminated and lacquered, then silk–screened with the individual identifying Pantone number.


The collection comprises eight color sets, each with six gradations of color, for a total range of 48 colors.

The stool was designed by London–based designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, the principals of Barber Osgerby.

Better move fast: only 50 were made, in varying shades of red, pink, orange and yellow.

Length: 400 cm length; Width: 415 cm; Height: 460 cm.


They're available at www.pantone.com.

Love these. Reminds me of the Pantone "fan" I used as associate editor of a magazine a few years back. Colors -- I want a job naming the hues, tones, shades and other variations.

Sistine Blue

Cosmic Latte (tan-ish shade that the universe mimics, according to NASA astronomers)

April Grass


Spanish Lavender
