Stools made by Stool Klaus are minimalist and indestructible. Perhaps that's why they are often found in ateliers and studios of creative people.

It comes in four sizes: small, medium, a little tall and tall. The smallest one is called Kläuschen, the medium-sized one is called Klaus, and the two large ones are called Barklaus 65 and 80.

Stool Klaus is not a concept, not a business model, not a bold plan. Instead: The joy of form and great coincidence. If you want to understand Klaus, the first thing you have to do is get to know Max Stralka.


Max Stralka is the designer of the stools and founder of Stool Klaus. The search for the perfect seating companions has been occupying him for years.

The stools are manufactured in small carpentries in Brandenburg and Berlin. Every single stool is unique and passes through the careful hands of Max.
