jaime hayon: pina for magis

the desire to create a chair in wire for exterior use was the starting point of ‘piña’, which jaime hayon has developed for furniture manufacturer magis. the piece combines the natural elements, with a capitonné steel rod structure painted in epoxy resin to form the back support. the wire weave pattern which makes up this component of the seating design makes the unit seem as if it is inflated. the seat and back cushion come available in expanded polyurethane covered in fabric or leather, with legs in solid beech–natural or painted. ‘piña’ was presented at the magis booth during salone del mobile 2010.
