The Pivot Counter Stool has a rounded, forward-leaning backrest. Alternating postures are encouraged as the chair can also be used in a sideways position or as a stable support upon which to lean. Soft padding guarantees excellent comfort.
As Pivot is 30 cm taller than a standard office chair, it is designed for use with standing-height tables. This encourages a healthy and spontaneous alternation between standing and sitting. Details such as the height-adjustable foot ring and non-slip fabric cover are all designed to facilitate regular changes in work posture.

Vitra Pivot Counter Stool Designed by:
- Antonio Citterio , 2012
Born in 1950 in Meda, Italy, Antonio Citterio opened his architecture office at the age of just 22. One of the most internationally sought-after designers, Citterio has worked for such renowned companies as Vitra, Flos, Kartell, and Iittala. The reason for the success of his design projects is that he likes to “tease” out an object’s dormant potential. He is on a constant search for true and authentic work and that he detests bad design. In 1987 and in 1994, Antonio Citterio received the Compasso d’Oro award.
Since 2006 he has been teaching architectural design at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, Switzerland. In 2008, the Royal Society honored him for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce of London, which gave him the title of “Royal Designer for Industry.”
