"As far as I am concerned, it is not design that interests me: I use design not as a means to an end, but in order to carry out my natural vital role, which is to produce images." - Alessandro Mendini

Proust was originally created in 1978 for the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara. It was immediately recognized as an icon of twentieth century design and one of the most renowned and essential reference points in the quest for form and aesthetic perfection. Mendini used a combination of a mock-antique armchair with a detail from a painting of a garden by French painter Signac. Over the decades it has been reproduced in many different variations including ceramic and bronze versions. Now available in sturdy and durable polyethylene in a mixture of old world aesthetics and new world materials.

The Magis Proust is made from rotational-molded polyethylene. The armchair is available in orange, red, blue, white, black and two variations of the original dotted multi-color pattern, is weatherproof and, as such, is suitable for outdoor use.

A. Mendini

Alessandro Mendini became a leader in design by pushing boundaries and challenging convention, helping to bring about the Radical Design movement.
Magis believes a design idea must not only be good, it should also satisfy a criteria of aesthetic functionalism. Magis combines quality production with design sensibility and preserves the tradition of Italian made craftsmanship.
