Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2014
Wrought iron base, various top options
Made in Italy by Magis

"Wrought iron - the shaping of iron by hammering - is one of the oldest techniques for making objects. For the Magis Officina collection, we wanted to work with this ancient fabrication process and give it a new visual language. As structural elements, they can create furniture of extreme sophistication, refinement and harmony. The surface of wrought iron is alive and imperfect, which lends the objects a special vibration. By reflecting the random, mechanical traces of the tools that gave them shape, these pieces bring a breath of fresh air to the industrial scheme." -Bouroullec brothers

Designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec celebrate the ancient craft of drop-forged iron with their Officina Chair. The slender legs are made of wrought iron rods that are heated, then bent, pressed, or joined where needed. A gently curved seat and backrest made of polypropylene or leather are set on top, creating a minimal design that celebrates the inherent irregularity of hammered iron.

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.

The Officina chairs feature a wrought iron frame, available in a galvanized or painted grey anthracite finish. The seat and back are offered in polypropylene, veneered plywood, or upholstered. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.
