piedras children's collection 3-piece set

Design Javier Mariscal, 2006
Rotational-molded polyethylene
Made in Italy by Magis

The roto-molding technique of the Piedra collection is perfect for achieving a volumetric shape in the form of a lump of rock with a texture that imitates stone. In this way, plastic adopts its historic function of imitating reality. In the Piedras concept, the trompe l'oeil that is obtained with the material is emphasised by the irony of what is formal. The Piedras chairs, which look as if they are carved in a coarse way, as if they had been shaped by blows, are like the sofas of the Flintstones, those primitive people who played at being middle class.

Piedras children's collection includes bench, low chair and table which are all suitable for outdoor use.

bench: 46.2" L | 23.6" w | 18.5" h | seat: 9.8" h
low chair: 28.7" L | 23.6" w | 18.5" h | seat: 9.8" h
table: 23.6" L | 24.4" w | 9.8" h

The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with “Step,” a ladder that was influential and crossed over into the designer furniture market from the hardware stores. They had two more huge successes in 1994 with Jasper Morrison’s “Bottle” and the “Lyra” stool from the Italia Group, their bestseller. Two years later, the “Bombo” stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style. Once the company gained momentum, they never slowed and would go on to produce Jasper Morrison’s technologically advanced “Air-Chair,” Michael Young’s “Dog House,” Konstantin Grcic’s “Chair One,” the “Me Too” line of children’s objects and furniture, and the “Striped” family from the Bouroullec brothers.
