Magis Piña Chair by Jaime Hayon . To create a chair in wire for exterior use was the starting point of the Piña chair Jaime Hayon has designed for Magis. In the look of a more sophisticated material and shape, the result is a chair that is fantastic for both exterior and interior use. It combines wood, a natural element, with a wire capitoné structure.
- The pattern created by the wire weave results in a magical optical effect where the chair seems to be inflated.
- When seated, the pressure the body inflicts on the cushion, marks a solid capitoné from behind.
- The chair, an extremely elaborated industrial project, is a process experiment guided by Hayon and Magis in the search for fresh and new concepts.
- The result is a very refined wire chair, adequate for both interior and exterior use, with a twist of magic.
Legs in solid ash natural or painted. Seat in steel rod painted in epoxy resin. Seat/back cushion in expanded polyurethane covered in fabric (Kvadrat, “Steelcut 2”).

Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliviero Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with his collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, later followed by interior design and installations. Jaime Hayon has created the FAVN™ sofa for Fritz Hansen. It is designed with great attention to detail and consist of very few elements. Creating FAVN has been an experimental dialogue. Thinking in a holistic approach, discussing who we are and how we live. Back to the human approach, while being innovative and taking risks. "I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic – that’s why we named it FAVN. At the same time I wanted to explore a technique – I always focus on techniques. It looks really simple, but it’s really complex.
