Magis Big Will Table

magis big will table

Design Philippe Starck, 2015
Die-cast aluminum, Tempered glass, rubber feet
Made in Italy by Magis

"Big Will is the story of a table, which wanted to leave. It said to itself: I can travel on my wheels. It did it or at least it tried doing like this, as it hasn't realized that it had only two wheels and therefore it could extend, with the great delight of its master who could only repeat: "when we are six, when we are eight." -Philippe Starck

Big Will tables mark a new chapter in a gripping story, in which the Magis philosophy and technology, with its friendly shapes and rigorous production, meets the creative spirit of Philippe Starck, design star of indisputable fame. Big Will's most striking and characterful features are its wheels - positioned at the extending end of the table - and the die-cast aluminum structure, which comes either in a glossy finish or painted white or black. The top is in glossy or acid- etched tempered glass, while the extension leaf is in glossy or matt finish MDF. The extending table can reach a maximum overall length of three metres. The table can be extended effortlessly, without needing to lift it, simply by gliding the extending end on the floor thanks to the two wheels, and to a patented sliding and locking mechanism developed especially for Big Will. Thus, this is an elegant, high-profile table, the fruit of several years of research to achieve that "more than" that Magis always seeks, as its very name reveals.

Big will features legs & crosspieces in die-cast aluminum either painted or polished. White & black frame tables include an etched, 0.4" thick tempered glass (matte) white or black top. Polished frame tables include 0.4" thick tempered glass (glossy) top. Extending tables include MDF laminate leaves painted either matte (black or white frame) or glossy (polished frame). Wheels and feet in rubber.

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the École Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President François Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with Stepladder 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 Morrisons Bottleand 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 Morrisons technologically advanced Air-Chair Michael Youngs Dog House Konstantin Grcics Chair One the Me Too line of childrens objects and furniture, and the Striped family from the Bouroullec brothers.
