Dimensione X Secret Fresh: 8 interpretations of the Magis Puppy Chairs!



When I entered the 2nd floor of Dimensione Bonifacio High Street last Friday, I saw these:


Ang saya lang, parang playground! :D


Happy Feet?




I love the deets of these chairs:



I really want one for my room:




Functional and great accent pieces for homes:


Looks really comfy:


I love this top-like chair:


Blogger Jacob Gayanelo playing with the chair. Ang cute nung kid sa playhouse!


I love anything with wood-finish, like these stools:


And of course, Dimensione is very well known for the MAGIS Wonder Puppy!  
Part of the children’s Me Too collection by Italian furniture manufacturer Magis, Puppy is a rotationally-moulded polyethylene object that functions as a kids chair, coat hook, playroom essential, or just as a large plastic dog.


Puppy was designed in 2005 by Eero Aarnio, a Finnish designer, whose pioneering work with the development of plastic furniture in the 1960s was responsible for an impressive portfolio of pieces, including the Pastil, Bubble, and Ball chairs.


Bet ko this glow in the dark Magis Puppy Chair!

Finally, the venue was filled to the brim:




This time, with Vergil Chua:


We superlove Verge, ang adorable lang, haha!

And it's Patty Laurel, yet again, as host of the event! :D She also hosted the Lactacyd event I attended earlier that day, bongga (and bonggang busy! :D)

The Magis Puppy is designed by EeroAarnio from Finland, one of the great innovators of modern furniture design.
