Design by Konstantin Grcic for Magis. TOM & JERRY is the redesign of a classic furniture typology: the workshop stool. The three-legged stool (in two different heights) is made of solid beech wood with mechanical parts in self lubricant plastic. Due to its smooth-running mechanism it is easy to adjust and convenient to climb. The stools make a versatile addition to working, recreational and private environments alike: an office canteen, the health food restaurant or the kitchen counter at home. It's the working stool of an architect or a scientist, the resting place of a museum guard, telephone stool, valet in a changing room, seating for children at kindergarden.
Special lesson for the students of the IUAV University of Treviso at Spazio Bomben of Fondazione Benetton, Konstantin Grcic told about his experience in the design field and about the birth of some of his products, now icons of contemporary design. Konstantin Grcic focused particularly on his relationship with Magis and Eugenio Perazza, Magis' president, who told some anecdotes on the collaboration with the designer during the conference.
