Rare classic Ulmer Stool. Bears its history through the wonderful patina on the simple and functional shape which Max Bill famously developed for the University of Design Ulm which he co-founded in 1953 and managed until 1955. The concept of teaching at HfG Ulm still characterizes the profession of the designer and is setting the tone with publications and lectures on design topics. Bill himself studied at the Bauhaus University in Dessau. Aesthetic linkages are Willy Guhl, Kurt Thut and Hans Bellmann.
