One stool - countless applications

One of the most versatile pieces of seating furniture - and that since ancient times - is the stool. Widely used in the Middle Ages, the stool remains a particularly popular designer piece of furniture. Stools are particularly suitable as additional, practical seating: models such as the stackable, Scandinavian design classic, Stool 60 from Artek or the simple Ulmer Hocker from 1954 by Max Bill, which is distributed today by wb form and is quickly at hand when seats are tight and also ensure an upright posture.

The multifunctionality of the stool

Stools are often used as a footrest and are regularity designed as a complement to matching armchairs: One of the most famous representatives being the Vitra Lounge Chair Ottoman, as a companion piece to the classic lounge chair by Charles and Ray Eames. The Vitra stool serves as a footrest for pure relaxation, or can be used as additional seating. Stools are also often re-designed to be in addition as a side table: decorative variants such as the Kartell stool Stone made of transparent, colored plastic can not only be moved easily, but also cleaned in an uncomplicated way. The Kartell Stool is a convenient bed, side table, yet feels just as home next to a sofa or anywhere else in the home. The material plays a particularly important role in the small side furniture. The simple forms of the Cork Family by Vitra, for example, depend on their materiality - the warm natural material cork.
