Magis Traffic Sofa by Konstantin Grcic. TRAFFIC is a collection of furniture using wire and upholstery.
- The correlation between the three-dimensional line drawing of the metal rod and the geometric volumes of the cushions marks a significant shift from the common connotation of wire furniture.
- The unassuming simplicity of its conception impart a pleasant casualness.
- The refinement of detailing and carefully tailored proportions stimulate a resounding elegance.
- The inherent logic of construction creates a formal grammar which allows for a number of functional declinations to form the TRAFFIC collection: an armchair, a two seater sofa, a small bench (which also serves as ottoman), a chaise longue.
- All pieces are available with upholstery in fabric or leather.
- The metal structure is either powder coated (in high gloss colours) or chrome plated.
Frame in steel rod, painted in polyester powder. Cushions in expanded polyurethane (2 densities) with removable cover in fabric (Kvadrat “Steelcut Trio”) or in leather. Tablet in acrylic HI-MACS stone also available (optional).

- Color Description
Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. <br /><br /> Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. <br /> What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionalble currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.<br /><br /> Many of his products have received prestigious design awards. In October 2000 Konstantin Grcic is nominated "Guest of Honour" at the Interieur Biennial in Kortrijk/Belgium presenting an extensive show of his work. The MAYDAY-lamp produced by FLOS was selected into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and won the Compasso D'Oro in 2001.
