THE COLLECTION
DESCRIPTION

FRONDA is a new typology for Mattiazzi: a seat that also houses storage.
Inspired by our contemporary, nomadic nature and the need in public places to accommodate personal items, FRONDA offers a single wood shelf beneath its sculpted steel seat.
FRONDA is the first Mattiazzi chair to use wood for structure and metal for its seat.
This inversion of material and function makes for a chair and a stool that are complimentary but individual in character.
When placed side by side, the pine base creates a natural spacer that allows people to sit next to each other comfortably.

“The metal seat takes Mattiazzi to a new place – an experiment that has some of the qualities of those beautiful Japanese copper and cypress washing buckets. What’s next is to see where FRONDA can live.”
Sam Hecht

“It’s a very practical piece for how we might work or eat at a long table,
when we also need a place to put something we carry.”
Kim Colin

“In making the first Fronda stool, we expressed the idea that the majority of comfort comes from the shape of the seat. For Soft Fronda, we use the original metal seat as the foundation for upholstery that is seamless, so there is no visible stitching. This gives an experience of visual softness in interiors, with the fabric seat bridging each side of the wooden structure.”
Sam Hecht

“The Fronda table is a first for Mattiazzi: a table that can provide discreet power access, simply and beautifully. Fronda seating is also now available upholstered, giving a softer feel with a warm presence.” – Kim Colin
