Magis Paso Doble Chair

The lithe, elegant motion of a toreador and his cape—the signature movement upon which the traditional Spanish paso doble dance is based—inspired Stefano Giovannoni’s seductive Magis Paso Doble Chair and Stool. Both are constructed using material suspended between rigid structures, much like the sling suspension found on Eames Aluminum Group chairs.

Giovannoni’s design employs sturdy, roll-formed aluminum rails and flexible polymer mesh to create the chair’s seat and backrest. The result is a lightweight and stackable lounge piece, available in a choice of colors and either with or without arms. A coordinating Magis Paso Doble Stool rounds out the offer from this Milan-based designer known for his keen eye for structure, form, simplicity, and playfulness.

“I’m interested in design that expresses both a strong idea and a soft technological approach.”
