At the space in Via Rosales 5, from 17 to 22 April, Magis presents Chess, the original collection of sheet-metal furniture designed by Konstantin Grcic and developed in close collaboration with Fami, an Italian company that is among the world leaders in the metal furniture sector.
The starting point for this project was a category of furniture normally associated with robust cabinets and drawer units. It was quite a challenge for Magis, which adapted the potential applications of this furniture for home use, softening the pieces with carefully-conceived alterations. With the tactile touch of solid oak handles, in contrast with the sheet metal, and the deep-set base plinth – again in solid oak – which elegantly lifts the pieces off the floor and gives them a lighter look.
