designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec
With an inversion of materials from what you would expect, the Steelwood Stool achieves a remarkable strength despite the delicacy implied by its beautiful wood legs. Calling their stool "stable and democratic, universal and long-lasting," the Bouroullec brothers combined the warm and deep-rooted qualities of wood with the permanence and strength of steel. We think the resulting bar stool (or counter stool) is one of the most understated and beautiful we've seen.

About the Designer
|Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Decoratifs in Paris and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him. Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own design firm. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewelry and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organization of interior space. Their work for Magis includes the Steelwood stool, table, chair, and storage system.|
About the Manufacturer
Magis is an Italian furniture company that puts a high emphasis on design and technological innovation. Its products often find themselves on the cutting edge of both design and structural composition - many times almost as a byproduct of the designer's standards of what is good and necessary in a useful chair or table. Magis seeks to create items that can be used in any room of the home (indoors or outdoors) and add beauty anywhere. Founded in 1976 and continuing to operate as a factory-free organization, Magis uses local contractors and outsources its manufacturing to create greater flexibility in the design process.
