Overstock is also selling a shameless dead knock off of Grcic's Chair One for Magis:

Really surprised Magis didn't put a design patent on that one (apparently).

Get the real thing. If you buy a knock off, you will always have that in the back of your mind as long as you have the chair. You're likely not buying the chair purely for its function since you require such a specific design. If you like the chair because of the design and it's place in design history then pay for the real deal. If you really shouldn't be spending that kind of money on a chair at this point in your life, either put off the purchase or scour the internet for a good deal on a second-hand one. I found two white Magis Chair 1s for $175 on craigslist when I was in grad school. I love a deal!

I'd go with Modernica. Interestingly enough, they actually bought the Original Eames fiberglass molds, and had been using those to make their "knockoffs". So the Knockoff was more original than the genuine ones? Unfortunately those molds finally had to be remade, but at least they had the original to base the new molds off of.
