Design Konstantin Grcic, 2016
Cast-iron, polyester powder-coat
Made by Magis

"It says a lot about Perazza, founder and head of Magis, that he has chosen the mule as emblem of his company. And, obviously, it says a lot about the company, its spirit and character being hard working, tireless. While we were working on the Brut collection of cast-iron furniture, Perazza asked me if I could draw a mule to be made cast in iron for the company's 40th anniversary. At first I was surprised, thinking that I have probably not drawn an animal since my childhood. I did it, and it was fun. Ettore turned out a real mule, its legs firmly on the ground, determined and strong. But it is also a beautiful thing, loveable and playful. Just like Magis." - Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionable currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.

The Magis Mule, Ettore, can be used as a door-stop or sculptural ornament. It is cast in iron painted in polyester powder-coat.

Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, essential, or minimalist. His take on minimalism differs from the current fashion in its function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.
Magis believes a design idea must not only be 'good', it must also satisfy criteria of aesthetic functionality. Magis combines quality production with astute design sensibility, preserving the tradition of Italian made craftsmanship.
