based on a variety of motorcycle styles, the ‘biker stool’ by canadian company castor design provides an edgy aesthetic to any environment. the materials and hardware used during its construction were also influenced by the biker look. the stool has been made at both chair and bar heights, in either a black or white powder-coated finish. the leather lined seat is based on the geometry of a motorcycle seat pan and is joined to a tubular steel base with custom machined brass bungs located between the biker stool’s seat and base.
