Founded in 1913 near Paris, the Nicolle factory forges and stamps metal disks. For his staff's needs, Paul-Henry Nicolle designs and manufactures a functional stool to which he adds an elegant metal backrest. Paul-Henry NICOLLE decides to market his seat production to neighbouring factories then very rapidly to factories throughout France. It is the start of an amazing industrial adventure. Three feet, a spot-welded circular seat and the backrest that quickly becomes known as the "whale tail".
