The 360° Stool by designer Konstantin Grcic for Magis encourages movement and dynamic sitting. As the name implies, the stool swivels around so one may sit on it in all directions. It comes equipped with a gas piston to adjust the height and a die-cast aluminum footrest. The frame is painted steel which supports a seat in integral self-bearing polyurethane. It is a forerunner of the office chair of the future.
The 360° collection consists of a chair with wheels, a table, and two containers on wheels, which continues to open the way for new concepts of office work.

“Designing a lamp is no longer limited to working around a given bulb. Today, it means designing the actual bulb or light source. This challenged me to think of Parentesi, a lamp that celebrated the traditional bulb in the most effective and beautiful way. Would it be possible to rethink the Parentesi lamp once more and pass the Manzù-Castiglioni torch on to the future? – Konstantin Grcic
Born in 1965 in Munich, Konstantin Grcic developed his particular aesthetic and became a well-known industrial designer. In 1991, he founded Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design in his hometown. His design work was often informed by his foundation in traditional cabinetmaking and included furniture, lighting, and accessories, often with the incorporation of unusual or innovative materials. Grcic uses injection molded plastic and aluminum die casting for the overall design of furniture pieces rather than regulating these materials to simple structural components. He has collections featured both at MoMA in New York City and the Deutsches Museum in Munich. He has collaborated with Authentics, Flos, Krups, Magis, Moroso, Muji, Plank, and Vitra. Notable pieces by Grcic include Chair_One and the Mayday lamp.
