Certain objects have a beautiful simplicity of design that marks a perfect union of form and function. The humble milking stool is the ultimate example — why bother with four legs when you really only need three? The universal design is appealing both in its antique truly-used-for-milking-cows form and in the many riffs by designers from the mid-century through today. TOP ROW: 1.
