Designed by Giancarlo Piretti, Strive high density café stools embody comfort, elegance and affordability. An ingeniously simple design allows the back to flex, which encourages movement and relaxation. With a clean, elegant aesthetic, Strive blends with a variety of architectural styles and coordinates with other Strive seating styles. Made of low cost, readily available materials, Strive redefines value and brings unprecedented comfort to a wide audience. Its durability is proven – an accredited test lab flexed the Strive back 1.2 million times – that’s ten times the BIFMA standard.
