THE ULMER STOOL REVISITED
Assessment Task 1
Research Report of Chair Designs
Due:

Week 4
Weighting:

20%

Assessment Brief: Research Report of Chair Designs
This project provides the opportunity for students to engage with the field of
contemporary furniture by examining local and international examples of chair designs.
Select a national and international chair design for comparative analysis and write a
1000 word research report that includes a report title and good quality, high resolution,
colour images of the selected chair designs.

You can start to explore your research through the following links:
International Designs
Vitra Design Museum: 100 Masterpieces
http://www.design-museum.de/en/collection/100-masterpieces.html
Milan Furniture Fair
http://www.salonemilano.it/en/media/mediagallery.html
Droog Design, Amsterdam
https://www.droog.com/designers/
National Designs
Rigg Design Prize 2015 at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV)
http://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/exhibition/rigg-design-prize-2015/
Anibou: European & Australian Designer Furniture & Homewares, Bourke Street
Sydney. http://www.anibou.com.au
JamFactory in Adelaide. http://www.jamfactory.com.au/studios.php

Ask yourself the following questions in relation to your research and analysis:
What is my initial response to the selected chair designs?
What do I find engaging about the designs in terms of (1) materials used, (2)
technical processes employed, (3) themes conveyed, (4) stylistic tendencies, (5)
historical periods or (6) functionality?
What is the background of each designer or maker for example (1) educational
training, (2) stages in design career (emerging, mid-career or established), (3)
stylistic preferences, (4) thematic or cultural influences?


This must be original work (in the students own words) of the standard expected of an
academic design student. All images, ideas and text quotes must be acknowledged
and referenced appropriately. Personal writing style, fluency and conciseness of the
written text, choice of objects and interpretation is important as evidence of research.

Assessment deliverables: Submit the research report as:
1) A hard copy format to the tutor that must include a signed assessment cover sheet
and,
2) A digital version uploaded on Moodle.

THE ULMER STOOL REVISITED
Assessment Task 2
The Ulmer Stool Revisited: Design Proposal
Due:

Week 7
Weighting:

30%

Assessment Brief: The Ulmer Stool Revisited: Design Proposal

The Ulmer Hocker Stool - A Post-Bauhaus Design
The Ulm School of Design was one of the offsprings of the famous Bauhaus School in
Weimar, Germany. When the Ulm School of Design was first furnished in 1954, the stool
"Ulmer Hocker" not only served as a transportable seating furniture, but also as a side
table, a portable tray for books and tools, and even as a shelf element, or, placed on a
table, as a speaker's desk.

The artist Max Bill, the product designer Hans Gugelot, and the carpenter Paul Hildinger
together developed this piece of furniture that impresses by its strict minimalism and
purely functional aesthetics. The "Ulmer Hocker" stands for the school's design
philosophy of clear, simple design that is suited for mass production.
You will be asked to thoroughly research this design classic and develop the skills to
make your personal interpretation of this multifunctional stool.
The emphasis here will be the development of your craft skills.

Assessment Deliverables:
A Design Proposal for the Ulmer Stool Revisited that includes:
A concept statement that explains the ideas and influences behind your design,
Concept models that visually communicate your ideas,
Measured drawings and,
One scale model.
In Week 7 a visual presentation only (not a verbal presentation) of your design proposal
for Assessment Task 2 will take place in the form of a pin-up. Therefore the overall
design presentation, in other words the visual communication of your ideas, needs to be
considered.


Assessment Criteria for Task 2 with Marking Rubric:




Assessment Criteria:


FAIL

Quality of research into the


Bauhaus philosophy and
understanding of the social and
cultural background to the
project
Conceptual innovation of the
proposed design
Clarity and accuracy of the
measured drawings
Communicative potential and
effectiveness of the concept
models
Clarity and accuracy of the scale
model
Quality of the visual presentation
including the effectiveness and
clarity of the communication of
ideas
