Yvonne Fehling and Jennie Peiz blend the lines of chairs, stools and benches into an amalgam of group seating with their Stuhlhockerbank series, made entirely of wood and presented in an avant garde fashion that commands a second look.
The design duo explain: “Over and above the pure purposiveness of a piece of furniture, the objects come with narrative elements. They seem familiar and yet at the same time surprising, enhanced by a sensual and poetic dimension.”
In some cases forcing interaction where there otherwise would be none between those seated near one another on an element of the series, Fehling and Peiz’s creation is as much a social psychology experiment as it is a finite design series.
The duo has also released collections called Filet and Hockerbank, each with a lighthearted, playful approach to seating of its own. Fehling and Peiz’s design practice is based in Denmark.
