Marcel Wander Designed Troy and Sparkling Chairs for Magis

The 2010, Milan International Furniture Fair is around the corner and as always Magis, Italy, will like to make its presence felt at the event. Citing similar reasons, Magis commissioned the help of renowned designer Marcel Wander who will be showcasing his ‘Troy Chair’ and the ‘Sparkling Chair’ at the event.

The Magis counter will be full of twisted and turned furniture designs and these two names from Wander will be the specialties. The Sparkling Chair as the name suggests will be made by using the blow molding technique and it will have legs replicating the soda bottles. As far as Troy Chair is concerned, it will have eye-catching patterns on it.

The first design is more boring than interesting, but the second one is really cool. I really like the glass chair. The curved lines and the chunky legs look very nice together. This is quite impressive. I would even create a set from these chairs, for the dining room. It’s really interesting how someone can create something so interesting and unique without bringing any revolutionary ideas in terms of shape or design. Simple changes often mean a lot.

I’m still amazed by this so simple design. The fact that the legs are replicating the soda bottles is a very fun element. I’m sure that this chair would quickly become the focal point of attention in the room.
