Melk-i, the Red Dot Award Winning Stool

Estimated Production Time2-3 weeks


Red dot design award winner Melk-i, is a modern interpretation an ancient object – the Alpine milking stool. The ergonomic stool is crafted using Swiss pine, a wood typical of the Alpine region where the milking stool originates. The resins and essential oils in the wood slow down the pulse rate, stabilize circulation, have a calming effect and increase well-being. Melk-i enables users to maintain a stable, balanced position while the spinal column is therapeutically relaxed and the back, stomach and leg muscles are strengthened by the spontaneous rotating movements. The Melk-i stool consists of 2 elements: the lower cylinder-shaped part which is hollowed out in the form of an inverted cone and a seat with a central leg. The minimalist and original design was awarded in 2013 with prestigious red dot design award.

About The Maker



View Profile
“The forest was my first playground” – Georg Mühlmann Having spent his childhood in rural Northern Italy, Georg Mühlmann developed a close connection to the natural materials around him. His family owned a forest in the small village of Innichen, South Tyrol, and it was there that he developed his love for wood as a material – something that steers his work to this day. Mühlmann could be described as an expert carver, craftsman, sculptor, carpenter, manufacturer or furniture designer. But his philosophy always remains the same – everything he creates must be sustainable, crafted with local materials and be of the highest quality in order to stand the test of time. The team have a strong network of local material producers and suppliers – allowing them to create made-to-order furniture pieces and bespoke commissions directly from the remote workshop. The design process is an evolving and adaptable response, conversations are always welcome about how Georg and his team can create or adapt the products to perfectly suit your needs. Georg Mühlmann works alongside his wife Alexandra from their studio, which is high in the mountains of Jenesien, overlooking the city of Bolzano in South Tyrol, Italy.
