Anderssen & Voll Tibu Barstool
  • Anderssen & Voll Tibu Barstool
The bar stool with gas lift is one of Magis’s most important inventions, introduced with Giovannoni's Bombo in 1997. When we set out to reinterpret this category, we spontaneously wanted to represent the height-adjustment feature in a new way. The seat and footrest of the Tibu are connected in a distinctly continuous shape. The base and the trunk are connected as a balancing counterpart. We would never have given this shape to a bar stool with a fixed height.

The organization of the various parts expresses the possibility of movement. The stool is monochrome in order to give all the parts of the product equal importance. The surface changes characteristics where needed, from the scratch-proof steel to the soft seat. The super resilient coating was developed especially for this project to safeguard the purity, geometry and simplicity of its design. The stool has an easily recognizable graphic expression, like a calligraphic image.
