The precise and elegant form of HOCKER HEINRICH’S delicate concrete body is captivating. Smooth outer surfaces stand in complimentary tension to the faceted interior forms. Light and shadow create a game of shifting perspectives depending on the angle of observation. While concrete furniture has tended towards compact and cubic structures, HOCKER HEINRICH reinterprets the material with a new approach that renders its technical execution a considerable challenge. The stool is hand-made in Berlin. The individual surface structures created during the manufacturing process give each stool a unique appearance, making it a one-of-a-kind. The weatherproof character of concrete also renders the stool suitable for outdoors.
HOCKER HEINRICH was designed by Panatom with Matthias Froböse. The stool gets its name from the German playwright Heinrich von Kleist (1777–1811). The first edition of the stool has been appointed to the permanent collection at Kleist-Museum in Frankfurt (Oder). The exhibition is structured to follow the cannon of Kleistian interpretative works: segments of the floor create a topography that the visitor can explore; highly polished steel rods stand against the darkness amidst interactive light displays generating excerpts from Kleist’s work. This contemporary interpretation creates fresh new paths in the mediation of literature and represents a strong inspiration for HOCKER HEINRICH. The unwieldiness of Kleistian language finds its counterpart in the heaviness of concrete.
Each HOCKER HEINRICH has its own individual style. The concrete surfaces vary from piece to piece due to air pockets that develop during the setting process. It is 45 cm hight, 40 cm width and 35 cm depth. The stool is available in anthracite or light grey; however, the concrete can also be pigmented other colours upon request. For additional comfort we offer a dark grey stool cover. The cover consists of high quality 100% virgin wool felt. The accompanying felt gliders, made from the same material, protect the floor and make it easier to move the stool. The seat cover is also available in other colours upon request. We are happy to reply to all inquiries and requests through the website.
