So futuristic that it was used on the sets of two Star Trek television series and the movie Lost in Space, the original Bombo Stool changed the whole idea of how a stool could look. Stefano Giovannoni’s gorgeous design achieved immediate critical and commercial success. The stool’s base is the foundation for an injection-molded plastic seat. Available in a range of matte colors, the seat swivels 360 degrees.

The Bombo Stool was so popular that Giovannoni developed two variations of the original. The Bombo Special Stool features a glossy-finish, rotational-molded plastic seat in a selection of bold colors. Or for another way to make a statement, choose the Al Bombo Stool with a seat of polished die-cast aluminum and a base of stainless steel. Both offer the same convenient footrest as the original.

“I have managed to bridge the gap between elitist design and design for the mass market.”
