Description

The Ulmer Stool from Max Bill is a well-received classic piece of furniture that can be used as a simple stool, an unusual coffee table, a bed-side table or a mobile stand for books and magazines.

Max Bill designed the Ulmer Stool in 1954. He was the first director of the Ulmer University of Design HfG, and designed the stool together with Hans Gugelot for the students of the HfG. Since money was tight, the furniture was made in the school's own carpentry workshop. The stool had the advantage of being easy to carry with great stability, so the students used it as a support frame for their documents.

The design was exclusively focused on functionality: The round wooden bar (initially made out of a broom's rod) gives stability to the stool but also serves as a carrying handle. It can therefore be used flexibly as a chair, table or shelf, but also as a serving tray, table top or to transport items. The Ulmer Stool is a good example of a design that succeeded coming from a sense of urgency.

Today, the stool is a true design classic! Its popularity grew steadily over the years, not only because of its versatility, but also due to its minimalist design. It is ideal for home-use as well as for public places, such as museums, galleries, shops, offices, hotels or schools.

Beautiful classic

5 of 5 stars 23.07.2019, , wb form - Ulmer Stool, natural spruce and beech

Automatically translated from German

For many years I've been wishing for the Ulm stool, but somehow I didn't want to see how I could spend so much money on an untreated, simple wooden stool. But in the end I bought it, which was the right decision. The design is simply unbeatably perfect. And that's something you have to reward. Therefore, I recommend him unreservedly. If I understand design as performance, then price-performance is right here. It is also produced in workshops for the disabled, which I greatly appreciate and like to support!

Indestructible classic

The Ulm stool is a cult not without good reason. It is suitable for every room, as a seat, as a side table, as a foot and book shelf. The finger prongs are also wonderful. I'd buy it again and again.

Beautiful and practical

The stool is beautiful and versatile (as a stool or as a small side table) - only 4* because it is not lacquered - and therefore stains quickly appear.

The surface is not treated '(as far as I know quite close to the original design) and after some time has simply corresponding traces of use, i.e. the stool looks then simply "dirty". I could now also live well with varnished or otherwise surface-treated.

This stool / side table is a true classic. Of course there are innumerable replicas, but it has to be this one, convincing also the material.

A classic - usable everywhere. As stool, shelf, side table. Very stable. It only reacts sensitively to moisture, as the wood is untreated. However, it can be glazed, lacquered or oiled if required - we like it best pure.
