Beazley Designs of the Year Product

Fronda Stool

This stool was designed by Industrial Facility for a furniture collection celebrating ten years of Mattiazi, a family-owned Italian furniture manufacturer.

UK-based designers Kim Colin and Sam Hecht wanted to design a ‘new typology’ for the company. They included a pinewood shelf below the stool’s seat, and inverted Mattiazzi’s traditional style by using wood for the stool’s structure and metal for its seat, as opposed to the other way around.

Designed by Sam Hecht, Kim Colin, Romain Voulet, Luca Corvatta and Mattiazzi Srl.
