All about Stools Experts say that the history of stools is rather like the chicken and the egg conundrum, as in which came first. The stool or the chair? The chair or the stool? Nonetheless, Magis create numbers of iconic stool of our century.


Bombo Stool Design Stefeno Giovannoni

Bombo Ever futuristic stool The Bombo stool is without doubt the most successful product by Stefano Giovannoni, which marked a turning point and a large step ahead in the company’s history. Sales of the stool began in January 1997, but in the beginning, also here, the market kind of ignored it.!

public. An extraordinary commercial triumph that is international and still going strong. This is the item Magis has sold most of. It is also one of the bestselling objects of the entire Italian Design system. Bombo高 椅無疑是意大利設計師Stefano Giovannoni的代表作,亦同時寫下了Magis 歷史性光輝的一頁。1997年在Bombo初推

Then came, slowly but surely, many fortuitous product placements in television programs that were broadcasted in Italy and abroad. Also several popular movies featured the stool. Among them “Star Trek” and “Lost in Space”. In “Lost in Space”, Bombo was even the only real object, the only existing thing in a virtual world. Then there were numerous favorable reviews in the national and international press. And that’s how Bombo came to widespread success with the

出的時候,設計並沒立即受市場認同。隨後 自Bombo於意大利及世界電視,科幻電影出 現(如“Star Trek” 及 “Lostin Space”),當 時Bombo是在電影Lost in Space裡,唯一 屬於現實世界的設計。甚至被世界傳媒一致 好評。自此Bombo開始被受世界關注,國際 媒體爭相追捧,至今Bombo仍然是家具意大 利設計史上銷量最高的高

椅。


Tom’s and Jerry is a statement from Magis, a self actualization of the company’s vision. In the same vein, Konstantin Grcic’s Tom and Jerry stools, produced since 2012, mark a new approach to the idea of artisanal work. The stools are made of beech (of artisanal

origin) with two plastic parts (of industrial origin): the screw and the joint that unites the legs. Everyone knows that wood is a more important material than plastic, but it’s the plastic that embodies the beautiful part of the design of these two stools. From a semiological point of view, it’s the opposite situation to Cyborg’s.

“Take, for example, the Cyborg chair designed by Marcel Wanders. The design has an industrial part consisting of the four very simple plastic legs, almost basic, deliberately “non-designed” and an artisanal “designed” part, i.e. the backrest, which can be made of wicker, plywood or solid wood, or padded and upholstered in fine fabrics or in leather. And tomorrow it could be made of wrought iron or other materials. Therefore, a never-ending design story; it is precisely the backrest that dictates the chair’s expressive and aesthetic quality. No one will ever say that Cyborg is a plastic chair; they’ll say that it’s a wicker chair when the backrest is made of wicker, or a wooden chair when it has a wooden backrest, etc., etc. “ - Eugenio Perazza


What do you think is missing from spaces that sell or show design? Very often I find that in design shops there is no passion or subjectivity. The selection is based on other kinds of parameter, like if they sell. A lot of the time it's really uninspired or lazy. Shops always show the same things and I get so disappointed because I know of all the other things that are on the market. I generalise, of course, but I find that retail is becoming the whole system. When you go to trade fairs and see what designers are creating and what producers are making, there's a lot of good stuff around, but at your local shop none of that seems to be available. What do you mean by elitist? I think that my role as a designer is very elitist. I work for a small niche of top companies and even if not everything I do is avante garde, it's still more exclusive than inclusive. When we design things it's not for the masses. But it's very important and it took me a while to discover that this is the role that we have to play. You know, designing for the masses is an elusion. In the end it is much more beneficial creating strong, more radical products and then somehow they trickle down to a broader acceptance.
