The modernist silhouette of the subtly attractive Magis Mariolina Chair was created by the restless mind of the Italian polymath Enzo Mari, and this piece is produced by the popular homeware giants Magis.
Amongst many other accolades, the multiple award-winning Mari has received the prestigious Compasso d'Oro award for several of his furniture design, and he has exhibited at the New York Museum of Modern art. Adhering to the principle that "form is everything", his highly individual designs marry ascetic straight lines with sinuous curves, and his pieces are as much delightful objects as they are usable pieces of furniture.
This philosophy is encapsulated by the beautiful Magis Mariolina Chair: the modernist restraint of its stark chrome frame is counterpointed by a splash of colour from its seat and backrest, and the frame's clean lines sit in easy opposition to the curves. An ideal chair for a kitchen or dining room, its strength and durability are in direct proportion to its uncompromisingly contemporary good looks. The polypropylene seat and backrest are convenient to clean, and the chair stacks for easy storage. This impressive chair is a prime example of what happens when dogmatic design meets domestic usability.
