Established in 1976 in the north east of Italy, Magis designs without boundaries from an Italian company. The company’s success is based on the desire to provide a broad swathe of users with access to high functional and technological quality products for the home, developed in partnership with major international designers, with a vision of the resulting products that is ethical and poetic as well as aesthetic.
Magis products that are all 100% “Made in Italy”, are a guarantee of high quality, in line with the firm’s tradition, which has developed from its craftmanship and cultural roots, through the evolving styles and industrial growth of the eighties and nineties, and continues to comprise one of the company’s greatest and most valuable assets.
Javier Mariscal was born in Valencia in 1950, and developed his professional career in Barcelona. The Mediterranean culture of both cities is revealed in his work: from it he has inherited the hedonism, optimism and symbolism that characterize his designs, as well as the vibrant range of colours and his poetic approach. Before dealing with projects from a multidisciplinary point of view became a recognized value, his professional activity already moved easily and confidently from one discipline to another, thanks to his untiring curiosity and his passionate drive for innovation, contributing to make everyday life more interesting, easier and friendlier. The creation of Estudio Mariscal in 1989, comprising a team of specialists who work closely with him, has allowed him to deal with complete projects. Mariscal is internationally renowned and his work reverberates widely in the media, due to the fact that he knows how to communicate directly with the general public, as does his work. Since his great speciality is drawing, his approach to any commission is an artistic one, using a universal, timeless language which adds value, uniqueness and emotional depth to his projects. His boldness is proportionate to the great challenges he has taken on, from the mascot for the Barcelona Olympic Games to the overall design of an extremely luxurious hotel, to the creation and direction of the film Chico & Rita.
