‘geh’ stell’ by marchgut at the blickfang exhibition space
product designers christoph march and marek gut of linz-based studio marchgut showcased their take on a beer bench entitled ‘geh stell’. the robust seating utilizes a set of metal leg ends which can be slipped on to any plank of wood to transform an otherwise abandoned floorboard into a quick-fix piece of furniture. the made to order legs allow the users to customize and personalize their bench without compromising on practicality.
