Precision with a side of character

Mattiazzi Forcina Stool

As with its counterparts, the Mattiazzi Forcina Chair and Table, the stool design is reminiscent of the shape of a bobby pin—hence the name Forcina, which means “hairpin” in Italian. Computer-guided machinery bends stainless steel rods with precision, shaping them into a sturdy frame for the wooden seat. The base of the Mattiazzi Forcina Stool extends up into a small loop, making it easy to grip and move around a café or other hospitality settings. The design is available as a low stool or a barstool with an integrated footrest, adding to its comfort and accessibility.
