Steelwood ChairPrice: $699.00
Design by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, 2008.
Made in Italy by Magis.
An unexpected union of two traditional materials forms the simple and comfortable Steelwood Chair. Unlike most of its plastic counterparts, Steelwood is intended to become more delicate over time, acquiring the patina of a well-loved object. The frame is made of steel plate, which requires an extensive stamping process to achieve the chair's unique curvature. The steel is then painted in epoxy resin. Legs and seat are made from solid beech, either natural or painted.
Material(s): Steel plate frame, solid beech legs and seat
- Overall: 29.9" H X 21.7" W X 18.1" D
- Seat height: 17.7"; Arm height: 26.8"

Designer: Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him.
Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own design firm. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organization of interior space.View other products by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec
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
