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.

'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.

“Wanders, hedonist designer and poet, imbued from child­hood with his Dutch roots has been the high priest of the brazen and offbeat style of early 21st-cen­tury design ever since the Dutch school emerged as a semi­nal influence. Baccarat has also joined in, claiming Marcel Wanders as one of its own, for his whimsical inspiration drawn straight from the Arts Décoratifs. Channeling the natural world, Mar­cel Wanders dreamed up “United Crystal Woods” for Bac­carat, a collection bringing together several facets of the company.”
