The Milker low stool and bar stool, designed by David Walley, are refined and contemporary interpretations of the classic one-legged stool.
The single coloured leg was inspired by a collection of over 200 milking stools, each unique. Although most traditional milking stools had three legs, many were simple one-legged devices that the milker balanced on and in countries such as Switzerland the one-legged stool was common. The single coloured leg on the Yellow Diva Milker reflects these origins. The single painted leg allows a subtle introduction of colour. We have selected a palette of ten colours, based on traditional ‘milk paints’: four warm & four cool colours, plus black and white. The collection includes 3 and 4 legged stools in two heights, chair with high back and tables suitable for cafes or breakout spaces. By adding just one painted leg on the 3 legged stool, Milker references traditional one legged milking stools. The 4 legged stool and bench seat is also available with a colour spot that coordinates with the steel brace detail. The chair shares the same leg socket as the Milker stool and a discreet mortice and tenon joint to secure the back. A splash of colour on the chair nestled between the two halves of the split backrest adds to its contemporary charm. The pedestal table is a contemporary interpretation of the classic bistro table. It is available with a custom cast iron base, optional screen print or plain top. The cafe and dining tables feature 4 timber legs, jointed socket details and cross rails to maximise structural integrity. Milker is available in a range of colour accents taken from a specially selected palette inspired by vintage milk paints. Milker is made in Australia, from American ash. The timber is finished with transparent ‘raw’ oil that retains the natural look and feel of the timber.
