1. How Is The Halt Bar Stool Manufactured?

The Halt Bar stool designed and made by So Watt in Sydney is made from solid steel rod, which has been carefully bent into the shape of the abse. The seat and backrest are also made from steel, the shape has been cut out on a powerful laser cutter and then bent to give the comfortable rolled edge under your legs and just the right amount of backrest to support the way you pause, relax and halt for a minute on this strong but elegant bar stool.

2. Can I Buy The Halt Bar Stool In Bulk For My Restaurant?

Our Halt steel bar stool has been designed with a focus on durability. The frame may appear delicate but the steel is incredibly strong and all joins are carefully welded for decades of use. The black powdercoat finish is super easy to clean and incredibly hard wearing, a favourite finish for hospitality furniture. All in all, the Halt steel bar stool is ideal for bulk orders and commercial settings and a great restaurant bar stool!

3. What’s The Difference Between The Cushion Types?

To keep the slim profile design of the Halt steel bar stool, we have created upholstery options to provide just the right amount of soft comfortable padding. We use a commercial grade foam which is fixed directly to the steel seat and backrest. You can then choose either 100% real cow leather in two colourways or a 100% wool felt in grey. Your chosen upholstery is then applied to the entire seat and backrest area over the foam and made into a pull handle which is bolted to the back of the Halt bar stool with brass bolts. 

4. What Makes The Halt Bar Stool Unique?

The design of the Halt Bar Stool is focused on achieving minimal elegance, with ultra slim components all the way through to the upholstery. The bent steel frame and laser cut and folded seat are welded together for an incredibly strong structure, great for decades of use in the home or high traffic commercial areas and restaurants. The Halt bar stools are the modern and unexpected leather stools Australia loves.
