The Steelwood family by Magis is a reaction to the meanwhile wide spread trend of producing furniture out of plastic. Magis has also produced many plastic products in its manufacturing history, but in this case, the designers wanted the further development of something different and new.
The French designers and brothers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec developed the Steelwood family as the name reveals, out of metal and wood. Together both materials for an exceptional combination since wood and metal contrast each other, but still being a perfect fulfil.
Magis produces the successful Steelwood family since 2008, this one initially consisted of a chair and a table. Because of the success, 2009 a shelving system and 2010 a wardrobe followed.
