Like paper to create origami, we have created furniture with the folds of a single sheet of steel. A tribute to the practicality of a simple, intelligent design.
All of the MAGARU pieces are made of steel. A strong, sustainable material folded into the best simple shapes in order to avoid weak points. Designed to be adaptable, thanks to its delicate lines and minimal design, with one single colour per piece.
We like to support independent manufacturers and save the planet of unnecessary shipping. Also our designs can be made from anywhere with the right facilities and it is more efficient financially, so everyone wins. This is why, as we grow, we will make sure we find other partners around the world, so we can support your local economy as well as ours.
We have a mission to design furniture for everyone. We are a group of designers and makers specialized in quality custom made furniture. At some point, we got chatting about the fact that we couldn’t afford the pieces we were making for our clients.
We decided to get together and use design to solve the problem, optimizing resources to reduce manufacturing costs, but without losing out on quality and sustainability.
All the MAGARU pieces are manufactured using laser cut and bending the steel. Back in our workshop we give the final touches, like softening sharp edges or removing any imperfections. This allows us to quality check each piece before sending it to paint.
We have used all the pieces in our offices and homes. We have tested them in extreme circunstances to make sure you can enjoy each MAGARU piece safely.

We are a group of furniture designers and makers that fell in love with MAGARU as soon as Jaime told us his idea. We decided to make it happen and continue following that path, using design to solve problems and always keeping our values on the way.
We are so fortunate that, even before everything started, we were surrounded by great people, that are also amazing professionals, artists and friends.
Marta is having breakfast, expecting the morning call. Jaime has been awake for hours..
Jaime: Marta, I had a revelation.
Marta: Another one?
Jaime: We are going to make furniture we can buy
Marta: I’m in! But.. how?
One hour later Jaime is coming to Comcosy office.
Marta: What are you doing here?
Jame: You told me you were in! You gotta check this out
Pilar, Alex & Marta: WOW
Our end goal is for MAGARU to be accessible to all homes, so that we can increase the quality and sustainability in an average household.
We are going to do this following our philosophy of “less is more”: It doesn’t need to be complex to be an elaborate intelligent design made with a single sustainable material.
In order to do all this we need to manufacture our first collection and find people that like MAGARU. But that’s just the beginning.
The revenue we achieve from your contribution will be re-invested in the following:
- We are going to find a workshop in Madrid for the Magaru team.
- We will invest more time to create the second collection listening to your needs.
- We are going to be more efficient everyday, so that it can be reflected in the price.
Also one of our challenges is to make Magaru local for everyone. A great benefit of our designs is that it’s better to manufacture locally, it’s cheaper, more sustainable and easy thanks to the minimal design. We intend to find partners all over the world to produce from the areas where we receive more demand.
Risks and challenges
We are aware of the challenge to produce locally for all our backers. This is why we have focused on maximizing the simplicity of our design and have contacted independent manufacturers not only in Spain but in USA, Germany and Australia among others.
Our biggest challenge is to have a minimum of 50 backers per country to be able to deliver to you a local manufactured reward. And we are confident that we will achieve this number. In order to ensure this we are ready to make special promotions to backers from specific countries ;)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
