The convention of constructing a backless chair involves the assembly of vertical supports and a separate seat on top. Unusually, these Brunner Hoc Stools have sittable surfaces that are formed by the horizontal extension of each of the weight-bearing props.
Three elegant pieces of molded oak or beech wood broaden smoothly and gradually from fine footprints. Once they've reached full height, the treated timber components form soft 90-degree bends and expand into warped pentagonal shapes. Together, the trio fit together like pieces of a puzzle.
Two models of the Hoc Stools include a short version and a tall barstool with a metal brace and footrest. Jürgen Laub and Markus Jehs have finished off their crisp-looking creations with matte, lacquer or varnish and the choice of colorful or natural timber.
