Magis Steelwood Theca Sideboard
Magis Steelwood Theca Sideboard by Ronan Bouroullec.
- The very basic typology of the Theca sideboard can be found in all forms, from different eras dating back to the 18th century and with a great appearance in mid century’s Scandinavian design - we tried to find a contemporary yet simple and unobtrusive language.
- The body (frame) of the sideboard is composed of stamped aluminium sides and MDF veneered shelves, the back and the sliding doors are made of (cut and bent) aluminium.
- The construction is simple – bolts fix the MDF boards to the punched aluminium sides.
- Two tones are available for the anodized finish of the aluminium parts – black or natural.
- The shelves come in European cherry tree or black stained ash.
- Theca exists in four sizes, two different heights (55cm and 78cm) and two different widths (93cm and 123cm). The higher version comes with an additional shelf.
The body (frame) of the sideboard is composed of stamped aluminium sides and solid wooden shelves, the back and the sliding doors are made of (cut and bent) 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.
