Officina collection by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for MAGIS

from designers :

Wrough iron — the shaping of iron by hammering — is one of the oldest techniques for making objects.

For Magis Officina collection, we wanted to work with this ancient process and give it a new visual language.

The result is a system of legs with a newly made geometrical shape. 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.

This new geometry is used to construct a large range of tables with tops of different size and nature (steel, wood, glass) as well as a chair and a stool with a injected plastic shell in different finishes (leather or plastic).
