Fredericia has launched a range of furniture by French designer Aurélien Barbry.

For example, the multiple footrests of the barstool are placed in various positions to allow people of different heights to sit comfortably while at the same time adding strength, stability and a distinct shape to the product. The barstool is divided into three vertical sections each made from two pieces, creating footrests where they meet. The resulting structure is then capped by a seat in black lacquered ash to create the seat.
