Design chair made from wood & plastic
The Cyborg armchair by Magis is a two-part chair composed of familiar forms, materials and colours to form a new version. The eponymous collection includes several chairs, which delight with different material combinations.
Cyborg: material mix
Based on the composite beings - known from sci-fi movies - the Magis chair is a component of multiple elements of natural and artificial parts. As Ply variant - namely leaned on the backrest’s material - the Magis chair consists of a frame made of polycarbonate and a backrest in solid ash plywood, which presents itself in natural colours or with matching paint finish in black.
Industry & manual work
Due to the extravagant material mix and the tension between material and manufacturing the Cyborg was awarded with the German Design Award in 2016. The backrest is produced in manual work, whereas the base is manufactured with the help of industrial processes. An exciting combination that is not only visually convincing.
Colour & material
The cyborg is available in various variants with upholstered backrest, made of wood or plastic.Also in our blog:
