So futuristic that it’s been used on the sets of popular sci-fi films and TV series, this innovative design by Stefano Giovannoni changed the whole idea of how a stool could look. Featuring a chrome steel base and a seat that swivels 360 degrees, the unusual—and comfortable—seat easily moves up and down, thanks to an internal gas piston.
- The base is chromed steel
- The seat is ABS
- Width: 44 cm / 17.3 Inch
- Depth: 37.5 cm / 14.8 Inch
- Fixed or Adjustable height with gas piston.
Magis gives you more choices—for indoors and out, for the lounge, the café, the patio, the lobby, the classroom. By combining craft with industrial process Magis products deliver beyond expectations. It makes sense, since Magis means “more than” in Latin. While delivering more, Magis uses less—material and energy—a commitment Magis shares with Herman Miller. A belief in authored design is another; Magis works with top designers from around the world, such as Michael Young who, in 2001, designed a fun and very functional doghouse.
