To forge iron is one of the most ancient production techniques. The designer brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec concentrated on this original technique of metal processing and designed different models, whose appearance is dominated by the industrial material.
The results are frames with nine geometrical shapes. The rough and imperfect appearance of iron adds an individual appearance to the furniture of the Officina Collection.
The base of the console table is made of zinc-plated forge iron and it is ornamented by different table tops made of slate or walnut. The material mix emerging out of the contrast of table top and frame is the reason why the Officina console by Magis is especially attractive.
The robust surface of the Officina table is also the reason why it is a welcomed guest in covered outdoor places. The table should be protected from weather influences, in order to save the qualities of the material, as is suggested by the manufacturer.
The Officina Collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec includes chairs, numerous tables and stools, which convince with the combination of masculine materials and filigree shapes.
