Magis Déjà-vu Aluminum Stool
Description
Déjà-vu: The uncanny feeling that you’ve experienced something before. Crafted with a precision reminiscent of an aircraft body, Naoto Fukasawa’s round stool is an understated design that feels instantly familiar. The polished aluminum piece is ideal as a stool, bedside stand, or side table. Fukasawa’s work is included in MoMA’s collection, and has been featured in several of the Museum’s exhibitions. Produced by Magis for Herman Miller®, a manufacturer in MoMA’s collection. Made in Italy.

Born and educated in Japan, Naoto Fukasawa began his design career at Seiko Epson, creating micro-tech products like wrist TVs and mini printers. In 1989, he moved to San Francisco and joined the firm ID Two to develop designs for Silicon Valley, including work on the design language and concepts for Apple. In 1996, he returned to Tokyo and launched a series of workshops that encouraged young designers to create intuitively. “This 'unthinking' state makes actions smooth,” he said. “Whereas, if we think closely about what we're doing, our actions become awkward or wooden.” Around this time, Fukasawa developed a widely popular wall-mounted CD player for MUJI, added to the representation of his work in MoMA’s collection in 2004.
