magis pila chair

by Bros Bouroullec from Magis

magis pila chair

Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2013
Ash plywood, die-cast aluminum, epoxy resin
Made in Italy by Magis

With Pila, the Bouroullec brothers' intention was to design a chair that would be brought down to its minimum, using the least quantity of material and assembling items. The plywood seat and back parts of the chair are supported by four very thin sticks in solid wood which are maintained together by a structure in injected aluminum that is almost invisible. The back of the chair, like the blade of a knife, subtly comes into the main frame while guaranteeing high support resistance. They wanted this chair to be as light as possible, to almost float in the space as if it would stay on its feet by magic.

The two brothers, Ronan and Erwan, have been working together since 1999. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, nourished by their single identities and strived towards a common goal. Today, the Bouroullec brothers work with numerous manufacturers such as Vitra, Cappellini, Issey Miyake, Magis, Ligne Roset, Habitat and the Kréo Gallery. They were named "Creator of the Year" in 2002, elected "designer of the year" in 2003 and have won multiple other awards. Their creations have been exhibited in many collective or solo exhibitions and are part of some permanent museum collections around the world.

Pila features a seat & back in ash plywood, natural or stained. The legs are solid ash, natural or stained. Joining element in die-cast aluminum sanded or painted in epoxy resin.

30.5" h | 21.8" w | 18.9" d | seat: 17.7" h
