2nd Ris; Second reef in French. It is a nautical term that serves to diminish the surface of the sail with a second fold.
Slender and expressive, this high stool preserves the same smoothness of lines than the Ris stool. A low support it is added for the feet which is
palmed in the interior when the stool is folded and it serves to give great rigidity to the structure when this is open.
