The Magis Proust is made from rotational-moulded polyethylene.
“I think many people will already know my “Proust armchair”. It is a romantic, baroque chair, on which an endless number of multi-coloured dots are hand-painted using the pointillism technique. These dots cover the whole armchair, both the fabric and the wooden decorations.
It’s a re-design work. It is, in fact, a combination of a mock-antique armchair with a detail from a painting of a garden by French artist Signac. From 1978 onwards, the “Proust armchair” was produced in many versions, using different colours, materials and dimensions, and was even made of ceramics and bronze. It travelled all around the world and was hosted in many museums.
But now some truly revolutionary news, as a paradox comes true: the “Proust armchair” has now been transformed into an industrial rotational-moulded piece. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you “Magis Proust”. This gem of technology and production brings new energy in its colours and atmospheres, making it a truly timeless object.” Alessandro Mendini
The armchair is available in orange, red, blue, white, black and two variations of the original dotted multicolour pattern, is weatherproof and, as such, is suitable for outdoor use.

An architect, designer, painter and architecture and design theorist, he was born in Milan in 1931. He gained international renown in the Sixties of the XX century; he is linked to the theoretical foundation of Postmodern Design and the concepts of banal design (the design that utilises banal as a linguistic code and "allows citation, incongruence, inauthenticity and incompleteness") and of re-design ("decoration interventions on rediscovered objects or famous design products").
