Paso Doble Stool, Outdoor, Set of 2 by Magis designed by Stefano Giovannoni
At A Glance: It is generally accepted that there are gray areas in all of life - but not so with the Paso Doble outdoor stool. You get black and white, and they look really good. The Paso Doble Stool is an exercise in curves, and with a mesh back that dries quickly and an aluminum frame that doesn't retain water, this truly is an outdoor stool. However, it's so beautiful and well-made that you may not be able to resist bringing it indoors as well. Available in either counterstool or barstool height.
What's To Like:
A beautiful outdoor stool is hard to find. This curvaceous beauty is one you'll be proud to sit in poolside - or on the deck.
Don't forget that the Paso Doble Stool's attractive qualities make it versatile as well. It's really an outdoor stool that has the looks to bring indoors.
Easy to clean - just take a hose to the mesh upholstery and let it dry.
What's Not to Like: You could pay much less for an outdoor stool, and there's no denying that. The choice is between refined modern quality and cost savings.
The Bottom Line: The Paso Doble Stool has the advantage of being versatile, attractive, and comfortable. That's called a trifecta, folks.

Stefano Giovannoni says that the most important influence in his life was during the late 1970s, when he attended the University of Florence. There, he encountered the concept of "radical architecture," which left its stamp on the expression of Italian design. The rules were gone, and he could see more possibilities for his creations. Since beginning his first studio, "King-Kong," in the 1980s, he established a reputation based on his cleverness and eye for communication, he has gone on to see many of his products, including the Paso Doble Stool, become commercial success stories for a diverse variety of manufacturers and applications. Having been a professor at several universities, Giovannoni is content now to advise up-and-coming designers to look further than the easy solutions and to focus on research. His work appears in several major museums throughout the world.
