Its structure with a lift up mechanism is formed by a pair of trestles in solid beech wood, which enables to adjust the top's height with a simple method.

Interior Designer's Opinion

Interior designer's opinion
The table proportions' have been studied in order to create a perfect harmony within the various structural parts. The glass top gives the possibility to admire the handcrafted structure either standing or remaining seated. Suitable for both large living rooms or dining rooms, Teatro is also an original table for an office or a studio in order to add a touch of personality to the environment. The MDF laminated top is painted in white on one side and black on the other one: this allows to change freely the colour of the dining surface simply by reversing the top.

To know More...

Historically, itinerant theatres such as the Commedia dell'Arte, or the Society of Moliere, were held in the streets over temporary stages made of wooden slabs set on trestles. That's where the name of this chair comes from, which takes inspiration from the shape of XVI century theatre's stages.

Magis history has been characterized by winning products acclaimed by critics, mass media and public.

The Venetian company was born in 1976 and in few years it astonished the market with original furniture pieces, up-to-date materials and innovative techniques.
1984 is the year of Step ladder. Initially it was completely ignored by the design field judged not worthy of a furniture store; in the following years this judgement turned out to be completely wrong since Magis sold a million copies of this ladder becoming one of their most acclaimed classic piece coming with a design which has been copied worldwide by top manufacturing companies.
The 90s welcomed new famous co-workers such as the designer Jasper Morrison, who created classic iconic products which appear now inside museums such as MoMa, New York. Lyra stools and Bombo, the extraordinary success of Stefano Giovannoni, were created during those years. From this moment on, the multiple Magis achievements brought them to display their own products in the most famous contemporary art museums: London, Hamburg, New York.
Since 2000, the year of Air-Chair designed by Morrison, Magis has been producing furniture items made of plastic or recyclable / recycling materials and using techniques such as gas injection or rotational moulding. In 2004 Me Too collection was born, a collection designed for children from 2 to 6 years. Many of these products won and still win several internation prizes such as Compasso d'Oro in 2011 for Steelwood Chair, a project by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec.
