Designer: Stefano Giovannoni
Inspired by the paso doble, a dramatic Spanish dance based on a toreador’s movements, Stefano Giovannoni created a dramatic but practical chair. The concept behind the Paso Doble Chair includes a light, flexible material suspended between rigid structures. The chair combines sturdy aluminum with strong, flexible polymer mesh as the seat and backrest, and is easy to move. Sold in sets of 2.
The Paso Doble Chair hides its strength and ability to stand up to the weather behind a sleek and sophisticated silhouette. Giovannoni, who trained as an architect, has an eye for—and interest in—structure and simplicity. He combined it with Magis Design’s cutting-edge technical capability to produce this versatile and comfortable chair for your deck or patio. It looks especially nice paired with its leggier cousin, the Paso Doble Stool.
"I’m interested in design that expresses both a strong idea and a soft technological approach."Stefano Giovannoni View Design Story
