New, soft, vibrant colours oozing with personality have come to join the Magis world!

Turquoise, yellow and pink for Puppy, the dog designed by Eero Aarnio featuring essential, rounded shapes, and which in these three new delicate shades reminds us of the delightfully soft, playful sensations associated with certain desserts.

Alternating warm and cool shades – yellow, pink, bordeaux, blue and green – instead characterise the new colours offered for the 360° container designed by Konstantin Grcic. These bold, distinct tones interpret the versatile, dynamic character of this practical storage unit on wheels fitted with rotating drawers, designed to optimise space in the office and at home.

ESAD ID TALKS – an account of Magis’ experience

+ read

Events

How is an idea for a project conceived, developed and implemented?

Education encounters Magis’ experience at the ESAD University in Porto, Portugal, a renowned international design school where Alberto Perazza held a conference and workshop on 17 May.

The event, which is part of a cycle of meetings, was an opportunity to speak about design and creativity to students and future designers and how the designer and the company can achieve these through working together in a coordinated manner. This is then followed by a targeted manufacturing process, which produces unique objects such as Magis’ iconic products, some of which were displayed for the occasion in an exhibition set up in the ESAD university lobby.

Magis at the Salone del Mobile 2019

+ read

Events

Magis is attending the Salone del Mobile 2019 with a space which embraces visitors in a sensation of serenity and sharing. The idea for this new concept, curated by Swedish Studio Note in its second year of working with Magis, is the welcoming classical architecture of the inner courtyards of the traditional Italian palazzo, more specifically Palazzo Ducale in Venice, and of the cloisters. A pursuit of visuals and volumes back in time, through fascinating architectural arrangements around a central courtyard, a generous and inviting space for socialising, yet at the same time intimate and protective, interpreted as the ideal place today for sitting, talking and exchanging ideas or simply taking a break. All around is the colour of water, the unifying element of the lagoon city, which becomes the dominant colour of the stand and its evocative atmosphere.

During the furniture fair week the Magis showroom on Corso Garibaldi will have a set curated again by the firm Note and dedicated to Plato, the new chair by Jasper Morrison. Press preview: Monday 8 April, from 3 pm to 8 pm

Come and visit us in hall 20, stand C15/D14, and at the Magis showroom at Corso Garibaldi 77

Me Too Experience, or gaining experience whilst having fun

+ read

Events

The Me Too Experience was inaugurated on 13 March at Le Murate in Florence in the presence of Eugenio Perazza. This educational-cum-experiential pathway and workshop for children was designed and planned by Magis in collaboration with the MUS.E Association.

The pathway, an itinerary made up of primary colours, tactile elements and formal proposals featuring animal shapes, was specially designed to provide recreational tools to exercise children’s imagination and allow them to test their cognitive skills whilst having fun.

Magis was selected by Le Murate – Progetti Arte Contemporanea and Selfhabitat Cultura for this important project precisely because of its extensive experience in the area of design for children, the research for which involved collaboration with major international designers and scientific advice from educational experts.
