Design Story

The Sgabillo Stool was designed by Max Bill and is produced today by the Italian furniture manufacturer Zanotta. Available in varnished birch plywood or black lacquered MDF with scratch-resistant paint, the Zanotta stool is also popularly known as the Ulmer Hocker and comprises three boards with a connecting rod and thus impresses through its simple, functional design, and has justifiably been considered a genuine design classic ever since its launch in the 1950s. Originally designed by Max Bill in collaboration with Hans Gugelot as a stool for students at the newly founded Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm the Sgabillo Stool can also be used as a side table or stacked as a shelf, thus allowing the Zanotta stool to be used in a wide variety of locations, spaces and situations.
