Materials / Production

Produced in Italy on an 8-axis CNC from solid ash with ash plywood seat of European origin, painted black RAL 1033.

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

Radice finds its underlying beauty and simplicity in its structure. What appears to be a traditional chair from the front with surprisingly only a single back leg – the ‘root’. It is a visual improvisation, where two things meet unexpectedly.

It is light both visually and in weight, using no screws or metal fittings, yet also passing stringent Bifma standards to ensure it is structurally sound, stable and reliable.

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.
