Magis Rock Door Stop

magis rock door stop

magis rock door stop

Design Marc Newson, 1997
blow-molded polyethylene
Made in Italy by Magis

To quote Mr. Newson: "Magis asked me to do a doorstopper and, although the orgone is a very old shape for me, it seemed ideal for the purpose. It was a way for me to work with blow molding technology, an industrial process used to make bottles, and I love the result. Its a really funny, quirky object."

A clever and playful object designed by Marc Newson for Magis. The Rock door stop is made from blow-molded polyethylene and it should be filled with water or sand. Great for use in holding a door open or on its own as a sculptural addition to your space.

9.1" w | 5.9" d | 4.7" h | offered in green only
fill with sand or water

Marc Newson

Marc Andrew Newson CBE (b. 1963) of Sydney, Australia (now based in London), is a successful industrial designer who works in aircraft design, product design, furniture design, jewelry, and clothing. He incorporates a design style known as biomorphism, which uses smooth flowing lines, translucency, transparency, and tends to have an absence of sharp edges. In 1984, Newson graduated from the Sydney College of the Arts in jewelry and sculpture. In 1986 he was awarded a grant from the Australian Crafts Council and staged a first exhibition featuring the Lockheed Lounge. The following year he moved to Tokyo, where he lived and worked until he moved to Paris in 1991 and set up a studio.
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.
