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.”
