Uncontained plastic at Milan2011

Moving away from the “container” look of moulded furniture, Ron Arad has created the Raviolo chair for Magis.

Determined to design a shape that completely resists “the inflated volume look” of rotational moulded furniture, Ron Arad designed the Raviolo for Magis.

Presented at the Milan Furniture Fair recently, the Raviolo is the result of making a continuous looped ribbon with a defined inside and outside texture that serve to make the continuous band more readable.

Arad confesses that the final shape of that chair was achieved by using different techniques. More than a cheap alternative, the rotational moulding technique used for the Raviolo helped to “save an idea that looked for another technology for a long time”.
