annika frye: adhocker collection

exploring the versatility of furniture’s most basic item, the ‘adhocker’ collection by german designer annika frye 
presents three types of stools designed according to principles of improvisation. as she explains:

‘the stool is the most simple piece of furniture; it is often part of daily improvisation and makeshift constructions.
still, a stool has to be made regarding rules of stability and use. thus, I used the idea of a stool to explore 
the possibilities of improvisation as a method in the design process. I found three strategies: 
creating something by using ad hoc techinques as a starting point, during the production process of the object, 
or by developing an object that the user can improvise with.
