I am a huge fan of Magis, an Italian furniture company that utilizes novel materials and manufacturing processes. Some of the most well-known designers, such as Naoto Fukasawa, Pierre Paulin, Ron Arad, and Jasper Morrison, have worked with this company. Recently, Konstantin Grcic, one of my favorite designers, has produced a breakthrough piece for Magis, yet again. The 360° Family is dynamic and unconventional to say the least. Take the swivel chair for example. I can’t tell if this thing is a stool or cockpit seating for a fighter jet:
Adjustable in height with gas piston.
The design is unmistakably masculine – and I feel as though I need to have a bottle of scotch and a cigar next to me to enable the full experience.
The desk is constructed in die-cast aluminum, with the crosspiece in steel, and the table-top in MDF. The dimensions of the desk measure 35.5 inches in width, 28.7 to 37.4 inches in height, and 55 inches in length.
