Magis Pila Chair
Magis Pila Chair by Ronan Bouroullec.
- Designing both the Pila chair and the Pilo tables was driven by the idea of creating light objects.
- The plywood seat and back parts of the Pila chair are supported by four very thin sticks in plain wood which are maintained together by a structure in injected aluminium that is almost invisible yet highly solid. Pilo answers the same quest for lightness and additionally proposes an open system that allows to compose a table that goes with one’s needs and wishes.
- Pilo is a table reduced to its minimum: solid wood feet that support a wooden top thanks to discreet and strong aluminium connections.
- Pilo and Pila comes in natural and stained ash.
Stacking chair. Seat and back in ash plywood natural or painted. Legs in solid ash, natural or painted and joining element in sanded or painted die-cast aluminium.

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.
