Chair First, Set of 4 by Magis designed by Stefano Giovannoni
Made using a groundbreaking gas-molding process (invented for this chair) that enabled the chair to be formed in one piece, Chair First is a sturdy, stackable plastic chair that is suitable for either outdoor or indoor use. The gas-molding process allows for greater strength and durability, as well as a sleek profile.

Stefano Giovannoni says that the most important influence in his life was during the late 1970s, when he attended the University of Florence. There, he encountered the concept of "radical architecture," which left its stamp on the expression of Italian design. The rules were gone, and he could see more possibilities for his creations. Since beginning his first studio, "King-Kong," in the 1980s, he established a reputation based on his cleverness and eye for communication, he has gone on to see many of his products, including Chair First, become commercial success stories for a diverse variety of manufacturers and applications. Having been a professor at several universities, Giovannoni is content now to advise up-and-coming designers to look further than the easy solutions and to focus on research. His work appears in several major museums throughout the world.
