Anything worthy of inclusion in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the Neue Sammlung in Munich or the Art Institute in Chicago is just right for your own four walls. Especially since the MIURA stool by Konstantin Grcic is not only an icon of modern product design, but also a characterful and practical everyday companion. Okay, it's probably more the special moments when we use it. But those are the ones that are worth the most.

The special thing about the chair is: of course, its shape. But almost more so its production. Designed for the Italian design company PLANK, the MIURA stool was created as a monoblock of reinforced polypropylene. The innovative injection molding technology and the requirement to develop a stackable bar stool for various applications have led to the characteristic shape of the stool. Visually, it is characterized by its dynamic shape, in which construction and ergonomics are in perfect harmony. Translates to: It looks like a work of art, but is wonderfully comfortable - both indoors and outdoors, after all, defies even the strongest UV rays. And because life can be colorful, it is available not only in black and white, but also in traffic red, pure orange, yellow-green, wine red and light blue. By the way, it is also recyclable.

So if you want to decorate your home with it: It is available for 185 euros directly from the manufacturer PLANK. Or from us. On Instagram. On our channel @ramp.space we are giving one away. If you want to win, you should name at least one other piece of design furniture that Grcic has created for PLANK.

If more than one entry is correct, the winner will be drawn by lot.
