Ulmer Stool Max Bill wb form
Versatile: Ulmer stool by wb form
Whether seating furniture, side table or shelf element, transport container, serving tray or table top - a stool has never been more versatile! The Ulmer stool was designed in 1954 by Max Bill, the first rector of the Ulm University of Design.
Max Bill's wooden furniture follows the credo that functionality should be in harmony with the material and design economy and that the designs should fulfil not only formal but also aesthetic requirements. Understandable when one considers the period in which the Ulmer stool was created: the economic boom of the post-war period and the memory of the war years were important for the development of Max Bill's wooden furniture.
Like other designers of that time, Max Bill adopted a clear stance: he frowned upon designs that only served commercial goals and thus encouraged fashion trends and a wear-and-tear economy.
With its versatility and its clear and robust design, the Ulmer stool, on the other hand, is a piece of furniture that lasts.

Sollte in keinem Haushalt fehlen
200 Euro für einen Hocker aus Holz? Es ist viel mehr als ein Hocker: bringt Menschen an einem Tisch zusammen, nimmt mir die Tasse ab und hebt mich dem ganz oben auf dem Regal entgegen. Dabei handwerklich aufwendig (Verzahnungen!) und absolut stabil. Optisch und haptisch angenehm wie ein liebes Haustier.
