Bell Chair is made with versatility in mind and can be used indoors, outdoors, for commercial use, events, and many other settings. It is meant to be used in creative, unconventional and innovative ways.
Magis steps up its sustainability efforts with the Bell Chair by Konstantin Grcic. The German designer worked with the Italian brand to develop a sleek chair for commercial and private spaces and together they explored a new material sourcing process. The clean-lined chair is moulded as one piece from recycled - and recyclable - polypropylene. Weighing only 2.7kg, it's a light chair but as it is one piece without any joints, it's also hard-wearing. The stackable design has a fluid, dynamic feel to it elevated by the circular lines featured in the backrest that flows back into the seat and the cut-outs below the armrests. The chairs can be shipped stacked thanks to a complementing delivery pallet that can carry up to 24 models, saving space and packaging materials.
What the brand says
Bell Chair is available in three colours – Sunrise, High Noon and Midnight. It is produced with recycled polypropylene, which is obtained from the waste generated by Magis’ own furniture production and from the local car industry. The patented material excludes almost all “virgin or new” materials and can be 100% recycled again after use. This way, Bell Chair forms an almost closed material cycle.
Konstantin Grcic was born in 1965, and trained as a cabinet maker at The John Makepeace School (Dorset, England) before studying Design at the Royal College of Art in London. Since setting up his own practice, Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID), in Munich in 1991, he has developed furniture, products and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field. His more renowned clients include Authentics, BD Ediciones, ClassiCon, Flos, Magis, Mattiazzi, Muji, Nespresso, Plank, Serafino Zani, Thomas-Rosenthal and Vitra. He has created a number of limited-edition pieces for Galerie Kreo in Paris since 2004. Konstantin Grcic defines function in human terms, combining strict forms with considerable mental acuity and humour. Each of his products expresses a careful research into the history of design and architecture, and his passion for technology and materials. Known for his pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist, but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity. Many of his products have received international design awards, such as the prestigious Compasso d`Oro for his MAYDAY lamp (Flos) in 2001 and his MYTO chair (Plank) in 2011. Works by Konstantin Grcic are part of the permanent collections of the world´s most important design museums (including MoMA/New York and Centre Georges Pompidou/Paris).
