The Ulmer Hocker was designed in 1954 by Max Bill, who was best known as the first rector of the Ulm School of Design. For the school he also designed, in collaboration with Hans Gugelot, a stool from donated wood which was processed in the school's own carpentry workshop. Today, the stool is produced in the workshops of wb form and continues to convince through its versatility. Thanks to the clean lines and unfussy shape the Ulmer Hocker adapts to any living area and serves times as a stool, side table, shelf or coffee table. The untreated wood from which it is produced also exudes a natural charm and a pleasant warmth.

Design Story

Original Ulmer Hocker through WB Form

Design

The Ulmer Hocker by designer and architect Max Bill is a classic of German functionalist product design and owes its name to the Ulm School of Design, where it was designed in 1954. And it is not for nothing that the stool became the flagship product of the institute: what appears inconspicuous and simple at first glance turns out to be a cleverly designed furniture object with numerous possible uses. The Max Bill stool can not only be used as a seat and side table, but also as a transport aid, tray and lectern. It owes all of this to its simple, stable construction. The frame of the Ulmer Hocker consists of two vertical and one horizontal board, which are joined together on the shorter edges by finger joints. A crossbar stabilizes the Ulmer stool on the lower side. The boards are made of spruce, the crossbar crafted from untreated beech wood. The beauty of the Ulmer Hocker lies in the transparency and sophistication of the design, its functionality and the sober handling of the material wood.
