Between objects and people, something has to happen. Konstantin Grcic said once in an interview. It seems that he took this sentence as a guideline for his Chair One which he created in 2003 for the company Magis. This Chair with its skeletal and sculptural form which looks like a model from former geometric lessons did not just cause irritation among experts.
However, in no case, Chair One is just an avant-gardist seating furniture. The chair is an interaction of material, forming and industrial production. It is rust protected, fire-retardant and thus, perfectly suitable for fire sensible areas and also outdoor usage. Grcic used for the first time die-cast aluminium for the whole seating surface which is furthermore treated with sputtered fluorinated titanium and painted in polyester. He chose polished anodized aluminium for the legs.
Chair One is a stackable full metal chair which is available in three different colours. Additionally, seat cushions consisting of leather or textile are available for Chair One (and not included in the delivery package).Also in our blog:
