The Get Back Original Swing-Out Stool

Designed, Cast, and Crafted in the USA

Tim Byrne, Founder and Designer at Get Back Inc, rediscovered the Swing-Out Stool at an abandoned Philadephia Public School.


Realizing the iconic design and craftsmanship, he recreated the seat in the Get Back workshop, adding flourishes of modern industrial design.


The Get Back Original Swing-Out Stool is an iconic piece of American industrial history, forgotten by many and rediscovered by few.

Every aspect of the Get Back Original Swing-Out Seat is created by American artisan craftsman. 


Originally designed by our Founder, casted in the USA, and assembled in Central Connecticut. 


The craftmanship behind the Get Back Swing-Away Seat represents the values of America’s industrial age, striking design and immalleable strength.
