Magis Officina Stool

magis officina stool

magis officina stool

Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2014
Wrought iron base, polypropylene seat
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

With their Officina Stool, designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec take the ancient craft of drop-forged iron and create a material language that belongs to the current moment. The wrought iron legs are entwined together in a solid construction, yet they portray a delicate balance and minimal presence. They are matched with a polypropylene seat available in several colors to suit a range of contemporary interiors.

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 stool features a bar-height frame in wrought iron, available in a galvanized or painted black finish. The seat is polypropylene offered in dark green, black or metallized grey. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.

Bros Bouroullec

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (b. 1971 and 1976) are a team of two brothers from the Brittany region in Northwest France. They began working together in 1999 and maintain a constant collaborative dialogue that incorporates each personality, and strikes a balance within their mutual quest for diligence and fineness. The brothers work with numerous manufacturers, such as Vitra and Cappellini. Their partnership with Vitra in 2002 has brought about perhaps their most prolific line of work, including the Joyn office system, and notable pieces like the Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest, the Slow Chair, the Vegetal and L’Oiseau. The brothers Bouroullec continue their vegetation-inspired work of natural and organic shapes and are recognized with various awards, in permanent collections, and in exhibitions all over the world.

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.
