Magis was founded in 1976 in Italy by Eugenio Perazza. Today, Magis is recognized as much for their innovative use of materials and production techniques as for their original designs. The company upholds a commitment to creating responsible design and a strong belief in design authorship by working with both emerging and well-known designers. Magis exports to more than 80 markets worldwide and is a “factory-free” organization that outsources its manufacturing to contractors and craftspeople who use diverse skills and expertise to build products. Herman Miller is the exclusive distributor of Magis products in the United States and Canada.
