Concept

While the old and traditional served as the basis for the new and the innovative, these highly inviting and joyful conversational structures blend the intimate with the public, the historical with contemporary art and design, and the ordered with the random. Max Borka, "Stuhlhockerbank" in Nullpunkt. Nieuwe German Gestaltung, p.249, MARTa Herford, 2009


Stuhlhockerbank is a series of seating for public spaces that approach users and viewers in an extraordinary way. The dividing lines between different types of furniture (chair, stool, bench) are eliminated as the three types blend. The results are immobile constellations that express a person's inner stance in the particular situation.

Over and above the pure purposiveness of a piece of furniture, the objects come with narrative elements. They seem familiar and yet at the same time surprising, enhanced by a sensual and poetic dimension.

Different models, solid oak, oiled finish. Some models can be assembled together.
