Looking at a bare Holzbock, what would be your first guess about its most practical function? Perhaps several very different ideas will pop into your head, and that's exactly the strength of this curious object. Comprising a wooden box on four spread legs and a tubular metal component, the piece would prove to control the chaos in any number of rooms.

Ariane März of Maerzgruen provides 3D renderings to show off many of the possibilities of the versatile item. The high bar of the setup can become a wardrobe rail for the storage of garments on hangers, making it a coatrack or an open closet for your foyer. The piping extends beneath the wooden frame to accommodate the suspension of other things. The Holzbock can function as a makeup vanity for placement in your bedroom or your bathroom.
