Soft, geometrical volumes, with fabric or leather covering, supported on slender, painted metal rod frames. This complete collection combines simplicity with refinement. Playing with different proportions, the basic concept of Traffic is created in a number of different forms: an armchair, a two-seater and three-seater sofa, a bench in two versions, and a chaise lounge. Upholstery can be supplied in expanded polyurethane, leather or with with a selection of removable covers.
There is also a series of Traffic tables at varying heights and sizes with the same geometric feel as this elegant chaise.
Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965) trained as a cabinet maker a the John Makepeace School in London before studying design at the Royal College of Art. Setting up his own studio in 1991, his work incarnates this duel heritage: a highly refined industrial eye combined with respect for the maker’s craft. Based in Berlin, he has designed furniture, lighting and objects for brands including Magis, Flos, Cassina and Classicon.
Magis prides itself on a wide-ranging catalogue of products that span from the aesthetically pure to the stylistically expressive. This deliberate eclecticism allows the brand to constantly push at the parameters of design.
