philippe starck’s ’stanley’ for magis has the distinctive single scissor-cross support in fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene as well as a seat and back in an extremely technical, high-performance fabric. it is the first folding chair to have passed the most rigorous strength and ability tests on both sides of the atlantic and it is suitable for a practically infinite range of uses, both indoor and outdoor, domestic and contract.

 

‘the elegance of the high technology enables us to rediscover the timelessness of the director’s chair,’ comments philippe starck.
