How to make an Air Chair
Italian design manufacturer Magis was kind enough to let us film their injection molding process in Milan last month, using Jasper Morrison’s Air Chair as an example. Maybe it’s just me, but there’s a ballet to the way these machines move, and you can get hypnotized buy the sounds in there. Thanks to everyone at Magis and OMB for letting us invade their factory, and for the excellent pasta.
Speaking of balletic machines and the people who operate them, check out Eva Weber’s excellent short film City of Cranes if you can.
