S. Giovannoni

Stefano Giovannoni was born in La Spezia but graduated in Architecture in Florence in 1978. Since 1979 he has taught and done research at the Florence Faculty of Architecture. He is master-professor at Domus Academy in Milan and at the Università del Progetto in Reggio Emilia. He works as an industrial and interior designer and architect in Milan, where he currently lives. He has worked with companies like Alessi, Flos, Magis, Seiko, Pulsar, Cappellini, Kankyo, Saab, etc. and received numerous prizes and recognition for his designs. His work for Magis included the highly successful “Bombo” stool and his “First” chair, both which produced an imitable style. He has been called the “most bankable” designer and the “King Midas of Design.”
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.
