Appraising the designer of the Revolver Stool by Danish design house Hay, the influential design blog Coolhunting commented, "A kind of Shaker simplicity marks the work of Leon Ransmeier, a beauty that results when an object is exactly what it's meant to be and nothing more." But Leon's notion of what's essential also brings a why-didn't-they-think-of-that-before relevance to this seating, available in two heights for counter or bar use. When the Revolver's slimline and comfortably concave circular seat rotates, it moves with the footrest in unison for the full 360 degrees. Now, "lean in" to a conversation in any direction without losing your balance! In powder-coated steel, a typically straightforward choice from this Rhode Island School of Design graduate, who honed his eye while subsequently living in the Netherlands before returning stateside to found his eponymous firm in New York.
“One of the most important things for our company is to make footprints of our own time,” says Rolf Hay, of his eponymous Copenhagen-based company launched in 2003 at the international furniture fair IMM Cologne. His idea was to bring Danish design to a new creative peak that rivaled the storied 1950s and 1960s—but with a modern update. As creative director, he’s committed to nurturing young upstarts and also “exploring the twisted minds of established designers” and giving both a platform.
In practice, that means seeking out imaginative products and evaluating them on their own merits rather than first commissioning a design for certain type of item. And he says his greatest thrill is seeing a prototype for the first time. “We work in a different way to the way our parents did, but we basically live in the same way,” Rolf says. “The news is that there is nothing new, except the possibilities. And that’s great fun.”
