About the Designer
Philippe Starck France (1949 - )
He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.

I absolutely LOVE this stool that I bought two! It is made of a sturdy, thick plastic material yet manages to look quite modern and elegant.. The off-white color is matte and goes very well with out off-white leather sofas. The stool is versatile; we use it for seating, as a side table, as a step stool, etc. I use the other AHA stool as my vanity chair in my bathroom. Additionally, the tops pop off and can be used for some storage. The stool comes in many colors so one can mix/match it with whatever you have at home. Can't recommend it enough.
Awesome little stool

Beautifully deigned and very practical. It is a small stool that I am using as night stands in the bedroom. The surface has enough space for a phone and a glass of water. Most lamps won't fit. Both sides of the stool can used as a surface, and both tops come off for hidden storage ( I don't think this was by design because there is no flat surface inside per se. I won't use them as stools except for kids.
Solid and stylish

This is a well made product with a great design. It's the perfect height for my bathroom vanity. I would give it a fifth star if it were more comfortable to sit on, but it works out fine for short periods of time.

Simple and works easily with modern decor. The Dove Grey is the perfect shade of grey for my bedroom. I placed it right beside my leather recliner but the window...fantastic. Delivery was prompt. Even the packaging was very well designed.
Great product, great color! Matches the description.

I had ordered a knock-off version of the Prince AHA stool, which turned out to be way too bright for my color scheme...even though it was have the price. The Prince AHA stool is the same color as advertised...light orange...and is a wonderful addition to our new furniture.
