Seven years after launching Chair_ONE, it was quite a challenge to design a second die-cast aluminum chair for Magis. Even though we decided on using fundamentally the same technology as we had for Chair_ONE, I wanted the chair to be markedly different from its predecessor. VENICE has much softer, more fluid lines. The carefully shaped seat-cum-armrest casting provides for elegance and comfort. A backrest made from flexible plastic molding emphasizes the chair’s typology and allows for play with color and materials. VENICE is stackable and can be used both in- and outdoors.
