White version of the Magenta chair by Raffaella Mangiarotti for IOC Project Partners

Dezeen Showroom: Italian designer Raffaella Mangiarotti has collaborated with office furniture brand IOC Project Partners to create a chair with a curving, slender frame that resembles a line drawing.

Called Magenta, the chair comprises a subtly rounded seat and backrest set within an ultra-slim metal framework.

This is balanced on four legs, which arch down towards the floor.

“[Magenta’s] structure is like a single line drawn in the air, almost like a traditional Japanese ink drawing,” explained Mangiarotti.

“The seat and backrest are gentle surfaces, perfectly duplicating the shape of the body. The contrast between these elements gives this chair its unique and peaceful character.”

Without the casters, the chair can fit into more informal spaces

Magenta’s seat and back panel are rendered in wood and can be upholstered in different fabrics or leathers.

The legs are either set on subtle, plastic feet or rolling casters while the metal frame can be made white, grey or black.

These customisable features are designed to make the chair versatile enough to match different office settings, whether arranged around formal meeting tables or scattered throughout more casual hangout spots.
