Design Philippe Starck, 2012
Stainless steel
Made in Italy by Magis

"Miracles are still possible. When we designed S.S.S.S. and the Magis family said they shall produce it in stainless steel, I thought: impossible. They are magicians, and they did it. Unique and incredible" -Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck's S.S.S.S. (Sweet Stainless Steel Stool) exemplifies the designer's notion that usefulness comes in many forms - function, beauty, humor and surprise, to name a few. By this definition, his barstool, made entirely from stainless steel, is infinitely practical - a design that piques your curiosity and entices you to sit.

S.S.S.S. swivel stool is height adjustable (pneumatic) and is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

21.5" - 32.5" h | seat: 15" dia.

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the École Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President François Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with “Step,” a ladder that was influential and crossed over into the designer furniture market from the hardware stores. They had two more huge successes in 1994 with Jasper Morrison’s “Bottle” and the “Lyra” stool from the Italia Group, their bestseller. Two years later, the “Bombo” stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style. Once the company gained momentum, they never slowed and would go on to produce Jasper Morrison’s technologically advanced “Air-Chair,” Michael Young’s “Dog House,” Konstantin Grcic’s “Chair One,” the “Me Too” line of children’s objects and furniture, and the “Striped” family from the Bouroullec brothers.
