the ettore mule emblem, in honor of magis

because it’s humble,
it’s not conceited,

it doesn’t show off,
because it’s a tireless worker,
because it never gives up,
when it falls it picks itself up,
because it doesn’t look for the easy way out,
because it loves a challenge,
because it’s innately, intensely curious and therefore continuously
explores new paths

konstantin grcic has designed an iron mule named ‘ettore’ to celebrate magis’ 40th anniversary. presented at salone del mobile 2016, the emblem reflects the resiliant spirit of the italian furniture company– which is both hardworking and tireless. grcic states that ‘ettore turned out a real mule, its legs firmly on the ground, determined and strong. but it is also a beautiful thing, loveable and playful. just like magis.’
