Manufactured on a commercial scale the design is based on the "Poltrona di Proust", designed by Alessandro Mendini in 1978. This new version of the Proust Chair is suitable for outdoor use and comes in various colours to complement your garden.
Alessandro Mendini (1931-2019) was an architect and designer, but also editor of influential titles Domus and Casabella. Renowned as a co-founder along with Ettore Sottsass of the Memphis group, Mendini’s iconoclasm extended to furniture, lighting and decorative objects. Among his most notable designs is the Proust armchair, a baroque seat covered in a Pointillist upholstery, but he also provocatively reinterpreted modernist classics by Breuer, Ponti and Colombo.
Magis prides itself on a wide-ranging catalogue of products that span from the aesthetically pure to the stylistically expressive. This deliberate eclecticism allows the brand to constantly push at the parameters of design.
