Sometimes, furniture manufacturers such as IKEA draw their inspiration from the designs of small manufacturers. In the case of Auerberg, it was the other way around. When setting up his own, first studios, Gerhardt Kellermann took his inspiration from the BEKVÄM footstool, with the clear intention of improving it.
His design, AEKI (try reading it backwards) is many things in one: a side table, a footstool, a bedside table, but more than that, a creative sculpture, similar to a three dimensional letter.
Auerberg's Stool AEKI is made out of stained and varnished ash wood.
