ronan & erwan bouroullec expand officina collection for magis with chair + stool

 

on the occasion of milan design week 2015, ronan & erwan bouroullec expand upon their existing officina collection for magis with the design of a chair and stool. working with the ancient process of wrought iron hammering, the studio has devised a system of forged legs with a geometrical shape suitable to support various dimensions and materials.

with the same construction geometry as the tables from their prior experimentation,ronan & erwan bouroullec apply wrought iron to a shell made in injection-molded plastic for the stool and chair series, available in two in different finishes — leather or plastic. a revealed textural surface lends each of the objects a distinct vibration and materiality, realizing a minimalist design which combines raw material and an unmistakably industrial feel with a refined and elegant sensibility.
