The Jamaica® barstool is a spirited and functional design from renowned Spanish designer Pepe Cortés. The stool has an exciting, assertive stance with a gracefully contoured seat perched on a tapered grouping of lightweight tubular legs. The collection includes bar and counter-height stools. The sculpted seat pan swivels 360°, and is available in hand polished aluminum or durable black or white nylon.
As an interior designer specializing in restaurants, Pepe Cortes has a unique appreciation of how people interact with furniture. Recognizing that stools are constantly being moved, he challenged himself to create an aluminum stool that was lightweight and therefore easy scoot, slide or simply pick up. The resulting Jamaica Stool brought Cortes worldwide recognition, and has been a go-to favorite of commercial and residential interior designers since its introduction in 1993.
Base is chrome plated steel with plastic glides. Seat swivels 360 degrees and is made from impact modified nylon.

One of Spain’s most renowned designers, Pepe Cortès studied interior design at the Eina Design School in his native Barcelona before founding the multidisciplinary design group Grupo Abierto de Diseno (Open Design Group).
As the firm’s principal, he has designed award-winning retail spaces, office interiors, restaurants, and furniture. From 1984 to 1988 he served on the board of the FAD (Fomento de las Artes Decorativas), a cultural institution dedicated to the celebration and promotion of Spanish design. Cortes was awarded the FAD Jury/Opinion Award in 1983, 1991, 2003, and 2007.
Cortes’ relationship with Knoll began in 1993 with the introduction of the Jamaica Stool. The cast aluminum design — manufactured by the Spanish design company AMAT-3 and distributed by Knoll — has become a design icon worldwide.
