Details

The starting point for this project was a specific manufacturing method: the production of cast iron, a material that combines great strength with a heavy weight. Cast iron performs well under compression, which is why it is used as a structural material for building bridges and, on a scale closer to furniture production, as a base for heavy machinery. It is this use of cast iron that has inspired the Brut collection. Its designs are reminiscent of the material’s typical industrial uses, and apply the communicative codes of that world to the realm of contemporary furniture: those of a solid, uncompromising material. The name Brut speaks of raw, untreated matter, but it equally calls to mind the lightness of sparkling wine. In addition to the tables and benches presented last year, the collection now expands to include a sofa with a cast iron frame and a fabric seat and back, a product that expresses refinement and elegance, qualities inherent to this project as a whole.

Born in Munich in 1965.
Many of Konstantin Grcic´s products have received international design awards and form part of the permanent collections of the world´s most prestigious museums.Konstantin Grcic defines function in human terms, combining formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humour. Each of his products is characterized by his careful research into the history of design and architecture and his passion for technology and materials. Known for pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity.

Magis was established in 1976 in the north east of Italy, one of Europe's most dynamic industrial areas. Its success is based on the desire to provide a broad swathe of users with access to high functional and technological quality products for the home, developed in partnership with major international designers, with a vision of the resulting products that is ethical and poetic as well as aesthetic. 

Magis products are dedicated to their international public and are all 100% “Made in Italy”: a guarantee of high quality, in line with the firm's tradition, which has developed from its craftsmanship and cultural roots, through the evolving styles and industrial growth of the eighties and nineties, and continues to comprise one of the company's greatest and most valuable assets.
