Brunner - Hoc Barstool

With 'Hoc', 'Brunner' presents a new product, which is a new interpretation of the traditional stool: a stool made of form wood with an extremely reduced designed. Its three identical legs combine to create the seat in an elegant line – "An easily understandable, simple structure looking like a sculpture", say the designers. 

The inlay of the wood emphasizes the reduced, straightforward use of forms. By dispensing with a back rest, sitting is flexible and strengthens the back; this also creates a relaxed communicative situation which is open on all sides. 

The well-proportioned stool is available in two heights – as a bar stool with a footrest and as a low, version, which is even stackable. Clients can choose among options in beech with a natural, stained or coated finish or options in oak with a light, wenge, black stained or matt finish – suitable for various interiors.
