In addition to the Chess and Linnut installations shared in yesterday’s live report, Magis also exhibits at the fairgrounds with an awe-inspiring stand designed by one of our favourite firms, the Stockholm-based Note Design Studio.
Inspired by the work of the celebrated Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, Note Design Studio has created an incredibly beautiful stand to showcase the latest news from Magis. Conceived as a small ideal city, the stand features muted archetypal tones alongside more sophisticated hues, and typically Palladian forms including archways, symmetry and perspectives.
Together with a selection of iconic products, some brand-new arrivals make their debut at their stand, including a collection of cabinets and drawer units developed by Konstantin Grcic in collaboration with Fami, a collection of sculpture lamps created by Oiva Toikka in collaboration with Iittala, a brand new chair designed by Jasper Morrison and a collection of iridescent mirrors by Inga Sempé – the French designer’s first project for Magis. The Me Too collection is also expanding with new, original products designed by Blaise Drummond, Spalvieri & Del Ciotto and Big-Game.

Vitrail by Inge Sempe | Our favourite new design so far has to be Inga Sempe’s mesmerising collection of Vitrail mirrors, inspired by mirrors found in Venetian antique stores. Equally functional and decorative, Vitrail comes in four different formats which can be hung horizontally or vertically. The collection includes a small square, a large rectangle, and an oval, all made up of geometric coloured fragments.
Little Big by Big Game | Following the success of the Little Big chair, the collection is expanded with a table and three ‘laughing’ mirrors. Like Little Big chair, the table also has a smart system, allowing its height to be adapted as kids grow.
Little Big by Big Game | The Little Big mirrors are irresistibly playful, designed to warp the appearance to encourage simple and joyful interactions.
CHESS – KONSTANTIN GRCIC | Designed in partnership with Fami, Chess is a new range of sheet metal cabinets designed in partnership with Fami. Available in a range of sizes, with the choice between drawers and sliding doors, the cabinets are powder coated in signal white or wine red and feature uniform solid oak handles.
Linnut by Iittala & Oiva Toikka | Following years of experimentation with polycarbonate-layering to create glass-like effects, Magis launches its first lighting collection with Linnut (Finnish for birds), a collection of five whimsical table lamps that also function as decorative objects when not illuminated.
Plato by Jasper Morrison | Made in die-cast aluminium, Plato is a rigorous, minimalist chair that is also versatile and sturdy, and well-suited for both indoor and outdoor settings.
