Stefano Giovannoni got famous by combining playful, humorous designs with innovative functionality. The First Chair, which Giovannoni designed for Magis in 2007, proves that the designer is still a master of his trade. Chair First is stackable, it is suitable for in- and outdoors and its form appears floating and soft.
Chair First is being produced of a piece with a gas injection technique from polypropylene. The chair has been awarded the Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deustchland (design award of the Federal Republic Germany), not least for the successful manufacture, which is appropriate for the material.
The jury formulated the reason for the decision as follows:
“The clear but soft lines, from which the different volumes of the round chair legs and the ergonomically formed, slender seat and back develop, are especially successful. Proportions, radii and the inclination of the legs create a harmonic but powerful impression.“
Besides the mentioned award in silver Chair First has also been awarded the interior innovation award 2008 and it got nominated for the prestigious Compasso d’Oro.
Chair First is also available in further colours and as an exclusive leather variant (for indoors)!
