Magis Officina Valet
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2016
Forging, the process used to shape iron, pressing it between the hammer and anvil, has a history that stretches back over millennia. Throughout the ages, this technique has been used to create an infinite number of everyday objects and decorative artefacts. The Officina collection explores the possibility of establishing a new creative language while working with an ancient fabrication process such as iron forging. Following the tables, chairs and stools launched over the past years, the collection now expands further with a series of accessories (from coat stands to a clothes valet to candelabras and mirror). All these pieces feature a forged iron structure, with the allure of a raw material handed down through the centuries, alive, with those slight imperfections that once again make each item in this collection unique, with a profoundly refined and elegant spirit.
