Annika Frye- Adhocker Collection

Annika Frye is a german designer who is interested in the improvisation in serial production processes.

Below is her explaination to the project Adhocker Collection in her website:

“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 – techniques as a starting point, during the production process of the object, or by developing an object that the user can improvise with.”


The Adhocker Collection consists three chairs:

(1) A stool made out of tape and airplane plywood.

(2) A blanket fixed to the stool frame allows the user to adjust the height by improvising.



(3) A stool that can also be a chair.
