created for italian furniture company mattiazzi, the ‘osso’ collection by french designers ronan and erwan bouroullec is a series of seating objects set to include a chair, armchair, children’s chair as well as high and low stools. each of the furniture pieces is made from wood – oak, maple or ash – of the highest quality, with the sensuality of the natural material becoming the focus of the design. the chairs are sculpted using solar powered, digitally controlled equipment, resulting in a high-tech assembling system.
