Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec: Steelwood Chair Magis
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec's Steelwood Chair by Magis is a beautiful, durable and functional
modern chair for everyday use!
The Magis Steelwood Chair by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec is a radical assemblage of two traditional materials,
forming a simple and comfortable modern chair. Unlike most of its plastic siblings,
it is aimed to become more delicate through time, acquiring a patina over uses and years.
Its silhouette makes it an easy chair, adaptable to any place,
from a café terrace to a inviting dinner table. For indoor use only.
Some assembly required.
The Steelwood Chair by Magis is made in Italy by highly skilled metal- and wood workers.
To follow the subtle shape of the metal piece, the stamping process requires deep
technological research. It led to the elaboration of almost ten successive stamping
stages in order to get the final curvature. The result is a wonderful
unique modern design chairs with timeless curves.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him. Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own design firm. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organization of interior space. One of their most unconventional designs, Algues (2004), was created in this context. The collaboration between the Bouroullec brothers and Vitra began in 2000 with the office furniture system Joyn, which was developed between 2000-02 and is continually being refined and expanded. Along with Jasper Morrison and Hella Jongerius, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have made major contributions to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.
