The Pratfall is a large fauteuil derived from its smaller counterpart, the Costes chair. Like the Costes also the Pratfall was originally designed by Philippe Starck for Cafe Costes in Paris. It was designed with three legs so that waiters at the cafe would not have as many legs to trip over! It has a black lacquered steel frame with a curved beech lacquered back. Leather-covered polyurethane foam cushion.
