Magis Officina Valet Stand
The Officina collection explores the possibility of establishing a new creative language through the ancient fabrication process that is iron forging.
Throughout history, this technique has been used to create an infinite number of everyday objects and decorative artefacts. Following the tables, chairs and stools launched over the past two years, the collection now expands further with a series of accessories (from coat stands to a clothes valet to candelabras and mirror).
All these pieces feature a forged iron structure, with the allure of a raw material handed down through the centuries, alive, with those slight imperfections that once again make each item in this collection unique, with a profoundly refined and elegant spirit.
Frame in wrought iron, painted in polyester powder. Coat hanger and tray in rubber
- Size Description
Ronan Bouroullec (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) have been working together for some ten years. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their differing personalities and shared perfectionism.<br /> In 1997 they presented their “Disintegrated Kitchen” at the Salon du Meuble in Paris and were spotted by Giulio Cappellini, who gave them their first industrial design projects, notably the Lit clos (Closed Bed) and Spring Chair. In 2000, Issey Miyake asked them to design a space for his new collection of A-Poc clothes in Paris. Then came the decisive meeting with Rolf Fehlbaum, chairman of Vitra, which resulted in their conception of a new kind of office system, Joyn, in 2002. This was the beginning of a special partnership which has borne fruit in numerous projects, including Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest and the Slow Chair. Since 2004, the Bouroullecs have also been working with Magis, for whom they have designed two complete furniture collections, Striped and Steelwood. Finally, they have worked on several types of textile wall systems, such as the North Tiles, in close collaboration with the Kvadrat brand, for whom they designed a new Stockholm showroom in 2006.
