Magis - Italian design and international versatility
In 1976, Eugenio Perazza founded the company Magis with its headquarters in Motto di Livenza, close to Venice. Magis sees itself as a sort of product publisher, where the different languages and styles of international designers are deliberately highlighted.
Magis is not really a production and fabrication company, since it has selected specialists and suppliers which are responsible for that part. The goal of Eugenio Perazza’s company is to focus more on being able to flexibly react to the ideas of the designers, and guaranteeing them a sort of autonomy and independence when creating for Magis. The founder Eugenio Perazza is always directly, passionately and very enthusiastically involved in the development process of the products.
Next to seating objects and furniture, Magis offers a diverse and fresh collection of everyday articles which are created by renowned designers like Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, Michael Young, Stefano Giovannoni, Marc Newson, James Irvine or Karim Rashid.
Unlike Cappelini, Danese Milano, Flos, Kartell or Zanotta, Magis does not belong to the traditional Italian companies of the 50s and 60s which were founders and formers of Italian Design. However, it is precisely this tradition with which the company is taking its own distinctive path since 1976. Magis is focused especially on the materials plastic and metal, with which it constantly produces new and innovative products.
Among the successful products of the company are, next to the famous bar stool Al Bombo by Stefano Giovannoni (1997), the bottle shelf Bottle (1994), the chair and arm chair Air (2003) by Jasper Morissonor, the Chair One (2003) by Konstantin Grcic the folding table and chair Aida by Richard Sapper (2002), to mention just a few.
