MC14 Primo Stool is a minimalist stool created by Munich-based designer Konstantin Grcic for Mattiazzi. Primo epitomizes the archetypal stool. Its design comprises of only the most basic elements: four legs, seat, and backrest. The strictly vertical orientation of its legs gives the chair a strong architectural presence. However, the formal strictness is disrupted by the curved backrest which seems to levitate on the ends of the stool’s hind legs. Standing on its own, Primo is distinctively sculptural. When multiplied, the stool conveys an unassuming rationality – making it ideal for a wide variety of uses in the home and contract markets. Primo’s basic model is made of solid beech. The black lacquered version brings out the chair’s strong and elegant silhouette. In gold, Primo celebrates itself as an ultimate icon. For additional comfort and sophistication, the chair also comes in solid American oak with an upholstered leather seat.
