Magis Tom & Jerry Stool

magis tom & jerry stool

Design Konstantin Grcic, 2012
Natural solid beech, polypropylene
Made in Italy by Magis

Tom & Jerry is the redesign of a classic furniture typology - the workshop stool. The three-legged stool comes in two different heights. It is made of solid beech wood with mechanical parts in plastic. Because of its smooth-running mechanism, the stool is easy to adjust and convenient to climb. Tom & Jerry is a versatile addition to working, recreational and private environments alike. It's the working stool of an architect or a scientist, the resting place of a museum guard. It can serve as a telephone stool, as a valet in a changing room, or as a seat for children in kindergarten.

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionable currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.

Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965, Munich) trained as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England and studied design at the Royal college of Art in London from 1988 to 1990. He then founded the KGID office (Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design) in 1991, which led to commissions from leading firms in furniture, design, and architecture. Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, essential, or minimalist. His take on minimalism differs from the current fashion in its function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.
The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with Stepladder 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 Morrisons Bottleand 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 Morrisons technologically advanced Air-Chair Michael Youngs Dog House Konstantin Grcics Chair One the Me Too line of childrens objects and furniture, and the Striped family from the Bouroullec brothers.
