the ‘traffic’ range of seating by konstantin grcic for magis, is a collection of furniture which uses a structural wire framework accompanied by upholstered elements to form each geometric piece–from an armchair to a chaise lounge, a sofa, bench, and simple platform. presented at the 2013 salone del mobile, the powder coated metal rod structures (in high gloss colors or chrome plated) takes their formal cues from that of three-dimensional line drawings  to form their shape, supporting the geometric volumes of the cushions (available in fabric or leather), thus marking a shift from our common understanding of wire furniture, the unassuming simplicity of their overall physique imparting a pleasant casualness.
