Muka was inspired by the whales that came from the North Sea to the Basque coast when designing these Nordic style bar stools. "Balea" means whale in Basque, and the rounded shapes of this stool remind us indeed to a whale’s belly. The decorative horizontal seams of the seat also resemble the belly of these cetaceans. Their soft and organic lines with Nordic style show us the wooden legs with a very natural and warm finishing, the upholstery of the seat combines amazing textures with a cheerful splash of color. The legs are made of solid rounded oak or beech wood. In this way we were able to maintain, in both, the materials used and the making process, the identity and the character of a handmade product. There are 2 different heights of the Balea bar stools: High: 77cm Low: 45cm.
