presented like a board game, or a puzzle, users can personalize the surface of the stool. the matchsticks come in twelve different colors and can be used to create different designs.

the three-legged stool was made in collaboration with creative agency M/M paris – a partnership of french graphic designer mathias augustyniak and french art director michael amzalag. the duo are familiar with the brand having worked with miu miu and its parent company prada on several other occasions. together they have developed mutli-dimensional projects including alphabets, exhibitions, and installations for fashion runway shows.

this exclusive collaboration intends to reflect a constant play where established forms are dismantled and re-assembled.challenging and utterly inventive, the outcome is about the power of surprise‘, a statement from the brand reads.

 

this edition of the stool is a manipulative entity, like a board game without rules. it will playfully transform to illuminate the personality of its owner, its circumstances and usage, while becoming its own colorful character.

 

 

reflecting its playful design, the chair was exhibited inside milan’s teatro gerolamo , a miniature puppet theatre built in 1868, during milan design week 2019. alongside a dedicated installation, the unique stool will be produced in a limited edition of 300 pieces.
