In 2011, DS+R commissioned Fproduct, Inc., to collaborate, design, and produce new replacement cushions for the initial barstools with Fproduct innovative Gel Pal material. While the new cushions replicate the original's overall dimensions, geometry and thickness, their new amber color, surface texture and feel were subtly augmented by the advanced technology of the Fproduct system. The result is a seamless visual transition for Brasserie restaurant's notable design with an improved tactile seating experience and cushion performance.
