Jeff Covey - Covey Model Six Stoolfor Herman MillerThe Covey Model Six 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 wire-base side chairs. Fun and Practical, easy to use, choice of seats.
The stool ships fully assembled. Available in spun aluminum or formed maple plywood. Height-adjustable. From 23-28 inches. Durable and strong. To adjust the height, the seat turns on a sturdy cast aluminum hub with a one-inch machined acme thread; legs are heat-treated rolled steel. Design Story When he designed the Covey Model Six 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 quarters, including an old ironing board. "They are very economical in terms of form," he says. "They have wire legs, like Eames wire-base side chairs." And like many of Charles and Ray Eameses' creations, the stool is recognized as an important design. In fact, it's part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection.
