The Champagne Cork Capsule Stool was designed by James Herman, a US based designer
The Champagne Stool began life at my birthday celebration. I twisted off the wire cage of a champagne bottle and the perfection of the little cork restrainer as a stool struck me. The six images below highlight the development process from initial drawings to a NEW YORK TIMES article and an installation view at the Bubble Lounge in Manhattan.
The finished patented product is a 30 inch high stool with vinyl upholstered foam seat.
Domaine Chandon of Moet Chandon agreed to allow royalty free use of their logo.
The Bubble Lounge in Tribeca, New York City, has its own version.
