—01. Designed by Max Bill and Hans Gugelot, 1955.
It is the complete simplicity of the Ulm Stool, created as a utilitarian seat for the school at which Max Bill acted as dean, that makes it such an attractive piece of furniture. It has no superfluous details, yet functions as a stool, a shelf, a serving tray or a side table – just to name a few. It's no wonder the design school's workshops were full of them, and it works just as well in a home.
