Materials / Production

Produced in Italy on a 8-point axis CNC machine from solid ash with plywood ash seat.

Solid wood is a natural product, and it varies in colour and grain, giving uniqueness to every piece. Any particular detail of wood (grain, mirroring, cracking and colour variations), do not have to be considered as defects but rather as natural features of the material.

Product Care

Please clean the product only with a soft and damp cloth. Remove immediately any type of stain to prevent the wood, fabric or leather absorbs the liquid. Do not use abrasive sponges or other aggressive materials that could damage the product. Do not use acid cleaners, solvents or ammonia-based detergents. Do not use specific products for furniture or fabric/leather.

Product information

Branca is made from a single piece of wood produced robotically and its back leg supports the critical joints of the armrest, the seat and the back. The joints are seen as but a part of the seamless nature of the chair and its simple outlines belies the complexity of production.

Mattiazzi is a family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy founded in 1978. Their highly specialized craftsmen operate the most sophisticated machinery available to the wood industry. An eight-axis CNC milling machine allows wood to take the complex shapes you would associate more with injection-molded plastic. Operating such a machine is an art and Mattiazzi disproves the modern myth that mechanized manufacturing is not a craft.
