Y stool ash and oak wood
Stable construction, charming aesthetics
Among the multitude of almost prototypical stools, this specimen occupies a special position: on the one hand, due to the combination of light ash wood (for the seat) and dark oak wood (for the legs), which creates an interesting contrast between the seat and the frame. On the other hand, the construction of the frame is remarkable, with its Y-shaped wooden connection, whose struts form a stabilizing triangle. For this, the manufacturer has been inspired by historical stools, which were and still are often home-made in China (and ergo in large numbers).
Auerberg manufactures the Y-stool from domestic, i.e. Bavarian solid wood, which is processed in the best carpentry manner: The individual parts are cut to fit precisely and finely sanded, all connections are constructed force-fit (the three legs thus do not meet the two horizontal plates at right angles, but are slightly angled - this ensures stability by static friction) and are invisibly dowelled with wooden dowels. The surfaces are oiled. The stool is available in three sizes, as a small 35 cm stool, a medium-high 45 cm stool and a 65 cm high bar stool. And thanks to the flat seat, all can of course also be used as a side table.
Radically simple, completely functional: Furniture from Auerberg
Radical reduction in form and material as well as a complete focus on function - that is the guiding principle behind Auerberg's furniture. They are handcrafted products, designed and produced in small series, far away from industrial standards, far away from fashion and uninfluenced by the constraints of marketing. Behind each piece of furniture is the authentic personality of the respective designer - and because there is no restrictive program dictate, the product designers are only committed to their own standards. Accordingly, all Auerberg furniture is unmistakable, sometimes purist to the point of stubbornness, extremely solid in terms of craftsmanship and thus virtually made for eternity.
The furniture is manufactured regionally in Upper Bavaria, the wood - mostly oak, ash and beech - comes from certified, sustainably managed forestry operations. The mastermind behind Auerberg is Christoph Böninger, once a professional globetrotter, now a settled design publisher. Böninger, who is very well connected in design circles, works in Munich and on his farm in Auerberg - hence the name of the project - near Bad Aibling. And even though Böninger has gathered a number of designers and architects around him for his "product lab" - established greats are on an equal footing with up-and-coming talents - he still lends a hand himself. Sometimes he oils wooden furniture and makes it ready for shipping. Incidentally, Auerberg's greatest successes to date include the step stool AEKI by Gerhardt Kellermann and the "Stumme Leiter" by Christoph Böninger himself, a versatile hybrid of step ladder and silent servant.
