This is a superb deck chair that is understated, unique, sturdy, and best of all comfortable too.
By: Howard C., Homeowner (city)
We leave these chairs outdoors on our small urban condo balcony. They are discrete when viewed from the street. The chairs are modern and surprisingly comfortable. They will not blow around in high winds nor retain water in the rain due to their skeletal structure. Highly recommended for a outdoor chair- cool indoors too.
Amazing chairs...radical design.
By: Courtney, Designer (Los Angeles)
The chairs were shipped two in a box. Very sturdy, they are also lighter than they look. They stack nicely, and are surprisingly comfortable considering the design.

Founded in 1976, Italian designer Eugenio Perazza began the first steps towards building an international design laboratory. In Latin, Magis means "more than" and that is exactly what Magis delivers while focusing on using less materials and energy. Always perched on the cutting edge, Perazza was named as "one of ten who will change the way we live."
In 1984, Magis experienced enormous success with their product Step. This ladder was snubbed upon initial release because it was not an item considered "worthy" of the furniture store circuit. However, the product met with tremendous success, especially in furniture stores, and Magisí fire was lit.
In 2004, Magis introduced their venture into the realm of children. Inspired by his granddaughter's propensity for drawing and a lack of appropriate children's desks, Eugenio Perazza conceived the Me Too Collection. He began by searching out designers who could think like a child and all the products in the collection earned Perazza's granddaugter's approval before going into production. The Me Too Collection features bright and innovative pieces that stimulate and engage children's perceptions. Me Too is about: "I'm here too and I deserve my place in the world."
By embracing the creativity of leading global designers and incorporating leading technology into the mass production of unique objects and furniture, Magis has garnered many awards and their Bottle project has earned a place in the permanent collections of many contemporary art museums.View other products from Magis
