MC13 Facile Bench — Natural Ash
Mattiazzi by Lambl Homburger

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

The design for the Facile table came about as a result of a quest to build a bridge between the twelve product ranges that existed in the Mattiazzi collection. They were looking for a simple (“facile”) table which can be used together with any of the collection’s chairs. So that is where the name came from, although they could have named the table “rondine”, or more accurately “coda di rondine”, after the dovetail joint which characterises this example of Mattiazzi craftsmanship.

This choice of joint was inspired by its use in furniture in local mining regions, where the designers noticed its unobtrusive, simple beauty. It has been in use there for centuries, often to secure the legs of small stools to the seat. A dovetail can be very precise and straightforward. Sometimes it seems a little too simple and fragile, leaving you wondering whether the stool might teeter like a young foal taking its first tentative steps.

But there are no such worries with the Facile bench, where the elegant dovetail expresses a sturdy simplicity to complement the sophistication of all Mattiazzi products, integrating the bench and table perfectly into the collection.
