A model ‘EL 121’ tripod stool by Eduard Ludwig. This light beech stool stands on three elegant feet.

This is a very rare and early, possibly prototype, version of the stool. The legs of the more common version of the stool are screwed halfway into the seating. The legs of this piece go all the way through.

Eduard Ludwig (1906 - 1960) was a German architect and designer.
Bauhaus educated Ludwig studied under Mies van der Rohe and worked at his office in Berlin from 1932 to 1937. After the war he taught architecture at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Berlin and ran his own architecture firm.
The focus of his design was affordable furniture, often to be assembled at home.
