The low-slung Medici Chair has generous dimensions and armrests that beckon one to sit and be embraced by the chair’s surprising comfort. The chair was inspired by its most essential component—wood. Mattiazzi, masters of crafting beautiful pieces of wood furniture, worked with designer Konstantin Grcic to develop the Medici Chair. Medici’s design is a love song to the material, the machinery, and the craftsmen integral to the woodworking process. Says Grcic, “I like the idea of wood cut into planks, which is how it is processed in the first place: the tree slices into planks.”
Hence the gorgeous geometry of Medici’s wood planks, which converge at angles both conducive to reclining and pleasing to the eye. Ideal for use indoors, the Medici Chair comes in natural walnut, natural douglas fir, douglas fir grey anilin, and douglas fir yellow anilin.
