Among other things, I am in love with the stools scattered around the factory and often in different places I have been in Germany. My friends Helen & David, and Gabi had lovely ones in their apartments, and I remember Otto Künzli telling us not to steal the lovely and historic ones we had at the Künste Akademie München.
This one on the left looks to have a comfy piece of asbestos stapled to the top?
I think I like them so much because they embody the idea of “sehr praktisch“, which is often heard. Well-made, utilizing strong readily available materials, and continuing to remain handy for countless years.
