Ulmer Hocker/Ulm stool – an icon of design

Lightweight, robust, versatile – the Ulm stool manufactured by wb Form in Switzerland based on the original design from 1954.


A symbol of the Ulm School of Design

The Ulm Stool may seem inconspicuous at first glance, but its history is just as fascinating as its minimalist design. Created by Max Bill, the first rector of the Ulm School of Design, in collaboration with Hans Gugelot and Paul Hildinger and produced in the school’s own carpentry workshop using donated wood, the Ulm Stool is more than just a piece of furniture. It is a symbol of the iconic Ulm School of Design (HfG) and its design philosophy.


Originally designed for the HfG students, the Ulm Stool now has many different uses: not only as a seat but also as a side table, shelving element, transport container, serving tray, …


Made from high quality beech and spruce wood (crossbar and base bar made of beech wood, side and seat surfaces made of spruce wood), the Ulm Stool offers a solid construction.

44 x 39.5 x 29.5 cm, 2.1 kg; attractively packaged

A comprehensive publication on the “Ulm Stool” can be ordered here.


The Ulm Stool is also sold at the HfG-Archiv (Am Hochsträß 8, 89081 Ulm).
