Designer Piero Lissoni created the Malga stool for Atanor. Malga stool is a seat in solid walnut or ash obtained from the burl wood of the trunk with three through holes to accommodate three legs in ash secured using ash wedges. The whole stool is finished with natural wax.
The surprise factor is essential; every object will be different from its twin, the stool will have lots of lookalikes but each one different from the preceding one: the beauty of error. I have tried to design a product with slender, tapering legs, to take the use of wood to extremes.
In the end it’s a stool, you sit on it, you don’t, you put your coffee on it, you tip over, you curse the architect, all within the norm… a stool.
