Detail of the 'Cyborg' chair by Marcel Wanders for Magis
Likened by The New York Times to ‘the Lady Gaga of the design world: a constant font of ideas and energy who is nearly impossible to ignore’, Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has recently collaborated on yet another product for the Italian plastic furniture specialists, Magis. Presented in brand’s own showroom at Design Post during this year’s edition of imm cologne, ‘Cyborg‘ is now available in two different versions: entirely made of polycarbonate or with polycarbonate legs and seat and a contrasting wicker back.

'Tom & Jerry' stools by Konstantin Grcic for Magis
Having created one of Magis‘ most celebrated pieces – the angular, instantly-recognisable Chair_One in 2003, the ubiquitous German designer Konstantin Grcic continues his collaboration with the Italian manufacturer who has recently unveiled Grcic’s latest products, a pair of three-legged workshop stools. Made of solid beech, the archetypal, modest stool has been updated and reinterpreted by the Munich-based designer through the introduction of adjustable, contrastingly-coloured swivel screw made of self lubricant polypropylene.

'Flux' chair by Jerszy Seymour for Magis (IT)
Resembling a squiggly crayon drawing and described as ‘liberating itself from the modernist grid’, Flux is the latest chair designed earlier this year by the Berlin-based Canadian designer Jerszy Seymour. Manufactured by Magis, Flux is created from two metal wires which are ‘treated as an axis with unlimited directions representing unlimited life possibility’ and the design is available in three vibrant primary colours.

'Baguette' chair made from wood, plywood and cast aluminium by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Magis
The Bouroullec brothers will be present at this year’s Salone del Mobile with several new products. One of them is this highly elegant and light chair for the Italian manufacturer Magis. ‘Baguette’ is composed of plywood seat and backrest supported by four very thin sticks in solid wood which are maintained together by an almost invisible structure of injected aluminium.
'Sparkling Chair' by Marcel Wanders for Magis
At this year’s Milan Fair the Italian manufacturer Magis will present some extraordinary pieces: ‘Sparkling Chair’ by Marcel Wanders lives up to its name – it is produced in blow moulded PET and indeed the legs slightly remind of water bottles.
‘Spun’ by Thomas Heatherwick is not as genuine concerning its material. At a first glance the chair looks like a ceramic bowl, in fact it is made from rotational moulded polyethylene. Nevertheless it is a beautiful spatial element, especially when you imagine it in a large number.

'Trattoria Chair' by Jasper Morrison
Minimal as we know him – at this year´s Salone del Mobile in Milan the Italian manufacturer Magis will be presenting a new Jasper Morrison creation – the Trattoria Chair. The light and translucent backrest and seat is made of plastic and its corded surface adds stability to it with a minimal use of material.
