Hocker Stool
Description
With its expressively organic shape, this tabouret by architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron makes a striking addition to any space. Crafted from solid birch, it appears to accordion under compression in a playful subversion of its substance. Available finished in white or dark brown, it makes a distinctive low stool or cocktail table. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in MoMA’s collection.

Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron met when they were both attending the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich and established their architecture practice in Basel in 1978. Over the years, their style has evolved from simple, rectangular forms to more complex geometric shapes. Their work for Prada Tokyo, the Barcelona Forum Building, and the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Olympic Games employs forms inspired by objets d’art. They are known for their innovative use of exterior materials and treatments, including silkscreened glass. Herzog and de Meuron have been visiting professors at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design since 1994 and are recipients of the Pritzker Prize and RIBA Gold Medal. Seven examples of their designs are included in MoMA’s collection.
