Lectus - Stools for museums, galleries and private homes 

It is not only practical and has won several awards, it is almost legendary: the folding museum stool Stockholm II. Stockholm II has not only been awarded the "Excellent Swedish Design Award". It also won the "Red Dot Design Award" in the category "The Best of the Best".

The Swedish manufacturer Lectus in Mönsterås has had the exclusive right to produce the complete range since 1995. It all started with the National Museum in Stockholm. There, the people in charge had been looking for a stable and easily foldable seat for years, but they just couldn't find what they were looking for. Finally, the designer Hans Ehrich from A&E Design AB took up the challenge. The result was the Stockholm II museum stool, which Lectus now produces in large numbers.

The Stockholm II folding museum stool by Lectus is not only effective and functional. It also has a high aesthetic value and inspires with its exceptional design. It is not only used for sitting in museums - the smart stool is also part of the permanent collection in several museums. 

Because Lectus has been so successful with Stockholm II, there is now a whole range of museum stools based on the Stockholm II design. Snupi by Lectus is a folding stool that has been specially adapted to the needs of children. The folding stool New York by Lectus convinces with an enlarged standing surface and increased material density for even more durability. The folding stool Chicago by Lectus is similar to the Snupi children's stool, but has a larger seat and height. If you have a lot of stools, you need a sensible and space-saving way to store them: Lectus therefore offers practical transport trolleys and sturdy floor stands for all folding stools.
