Magis was founded in 1976. Until a short while ago Magis was one of the few companies that manufactured objects in plastic. Today the number has increased considerably. Still, Magis uses the most advanced moulding technologies and techniques; it was the first company in the world to apply air moulding to aesthetical goods. Plastic will remain Magis? reference material, although it is now experimenting with others such as die-cast aluminium, aluminium metal sheet and wood. Magis works with very well-known designers, but it has always been open to work with young designers, even at the outset of their careers.
