Mattiazzi describes the Filo chair as having a "graphic sensibility" created by the robust lines of its frame, which give it an almost typographic quality when seen from the side.
Filo is the Bouroullec brothers' fourth product line for Mattiazzi after Osso, Uncino and Quindici, and has seen the designers apply their learnings to create a structure that maximised strength and minimised wood waste.
"After some years of work for Mattiazzi, we tried in this research to apply what we learnt from the years before," said Ronan Bouroullec. "I think Filo is very well composed in the sense of its lines, the tension and the radius but it's a bit more square than our usual work."
He said Filo works well in multiples and particularly around a rectangular table, where it creates an appealing geometry.
"I use it every day in front of my desk," he added.
Filo is available in several colours.
