over the past 14 years, italian furniture company magis has been collaborating with a series of designers to establish a world for children that moves beyond simply scaled-down furniture. the me too collection invites creators to view the world and the objects in it through the eyes of a child, resulting in pieces such as indestructible rocking horses, flying carpets, and modular beds that can be put together like construction toys. continuously growing, the catalogue includes furniture and accessory pieces by designers such as martí guixé, marc newson, giulio iacchetti, enzo mari, and javier mariscal

the me too collection was first conceived by magis founder eugenio perazza, who in 2004 wanted to give his granddaughter a table to draw on, only to realize that there was no furniture for children of her age that offered advanced design characteristics and a simplicity of use suitable for little ones. in the following years up until today, the company has released a variety of colorful pieces that combine an exuberant creativity with technological research, including pieces such as animals for playing or decorating, sturdy, lightweight chairs, and a patterned tape that turn an ordinary scrunched-up newspaper into a football.
