Additional Information

Description

Shin and Tomoko Azumi have brought innovation to a range of products, from subwoofer speakers to salt and pepper shakers to their LEM Piston Stool (2000). Named Product of the Year at the FX International Interior Design Awards in the year of its release, the often copied LEM Piston Stool reveals a rigorous and original rethinking of the form and function of seating. The sculptural seat not only swivels but also adjusts easily from counter height to bar height with a lever that activates a gas cylinder. While utility strongly determines its form, this unique stool also has a visual lightness that creates the illusion of freedom from gravity. After designing the LEM Piston Stool, Shin and Tomoko Azumi dissolved their partnership to start solo practices, and they both still develop furniture, lighting and interiors for clients worldwide. LEM is included in the permanent collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Made in Italy.

Great look, Low grade coating
We have the black on black. Beautiful and super comfortable with the pistol feature. Unfortunately, they chipped so easily. I wouldn’t buy full price

We have 3 stools and they have lasted 10+ years with NO issue. 3 teenagers have used them everyday during that time and they still look brand new! Would def. recommend.

Horrible customer service and cheap chairs that chip. Buyer beware.
If I could give zero stars I would. Overpriced. If they are next to each other, because they spin around, they will chip if they touch another stool. All of mine chipped. The customer service in Georgetown, Washington DC (Galina Ginzburg) was appalling when you‘ve spent almost 3k on stools. I will never shop at this store again. Period. I have also never written a review like this. So take it for what it’s worth.
