Designers: Design Group Italia
Created by the Milan firm Design Group Italia, the Lyra Stool owes a lot to the way Charles Eames used bent wood. You can see the Eames influence in the graceful molding of the wooden seat. The frame is strong but delicate-looking steel tubing in chrome. The stool comes in high or medium heights. Sold in sets of 4.
When the Lyra Stool was first introduced in 1994, it didn’t make much of a splash. No big awards, no museums clamoring to add it to their permanent collections. Then it took off, and now it’s one of Magis Design’s best sellers. And with good reason. Don’t you love its cool, avant-garde look? And it’s comfortable to sit on!
