The One_Shot.MGX Stool was launched at the Salone Del Mobile Milan in April 2006 and at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York the following month.
The One_Shot.MGX stool is a favorite amongst art and design museums. MoMA New York, the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and the Smithsonian Institution all acquired the revolutionary stool for their collections.
This piece is one-of-a-kind in good design and manufacturing technique. There are no gimmicks, no bells and no fancy colors. The stool has a simple and intricate mechanism built in one solid piece. Even the hinges are integrated into the structure in one shot – hence the name.
The One_Shot.MGX stool would not exist if it wasn’t for new innovations in product design and manufacturing technologies. Materialise.MGX gave birth to this stool in their design lab thanks to a process called Rapid Prototyping. 3D objects are “printed” by laser, adding one slice on top of another in a vessel of liquid polymer (Stereolithography / SLA) or powder (Selective Laser Sintering / SLS).
Product designs and manipulations are endless with this cutting edge technology.
Consider spending close to $4000 if you want to get your “derriere” comfortably resting on one of these beauties. This ground breaking hot product warrants the hype and hefty price tag.
