About jeff covey & his eponymous model no. 6 stool ~
The covey model no. 6 stool joins playfulness with a delicate appearance..Simplicity with strength. The seat’s height adjusts by turning it on a thread, and the legs are reminiscent of the classic eames eiffel tower-base chairs. Fun and practical, and easy to use. Height-adjustable from 23 – 28 inches. To adjust the height, the seat turns on a sturdy cast aluminum hub with a one-inch machined acme thread. Durable and strong, legs are heat-treated rolled steel.
When he designed his eponymous model no. 6 stool, jeff covey, a san francisco furniture designer, began with the end in mind. “this project was conceived as a study of the production process and its integration with the consumer,” he explains. This goal opened him to inspiration from some surprising sources, including an old ironing board. “they are very economical in terms of form,” explains covey, “with wire legs, like eames wire-base side chairs.” and like many of charles and ray eames’ creations, the covey stool is recognized as an important design icon, and is part of the permanent collection of both the san francisco museum of modern art and new york city’s moma.
The success of the covey stool caught the attention of herman miller inc., and in 2002, covey licensed the stool to herman miller for a period of five (5) years. At the expiry of this partnership, covey decided to take on the distribution himself while continuing the manufacture of the stool at the same facility that produces the herman miller eames collection and knoll classics. Currently, the covey stool is available to consumers through select herman miller dealers worldwide, as well as direct via the covey studio website at a starting retail price of $440 each (w/ delivery + any applicable sales tax in addition to.)
