JASPER MORRISON & MAGIS CONTINUE THEIR FRUITFUL COLLABORATION

 

back in the 90s, italian furniture company magis began collaborating with jasper morrison. following great products like the legendary air-family and the pipe collection, the long-lasting and fruitful relationship continues to produce fantastic results. the plato chair is the latest member to join the array, acting as a further proof of a successful relationship.

 

featuring an understated design with a neoclassical inspiration, its name — plato — references one of the pillars of ancient philosophy, while manifesting a perfect balance between form and function. its sleek yet robust structure results in maximum comfort due to its curved seat.

THE PLATO CHAIR IS STACKABLE AND IDEATED FOR DOMESTIC + CONTRACT USE

 

jasper morrison describes his plato chair for magic as ‘a fully recyclable chair, with extruded aluminium legs and a die-cast aluminium shell: a technology that enables us to create shells that are both slimmer and stronger than their plastic counterparts. there is also an optional seat cushion, as well as a version with armrests.’
