having bought a camping chair in japan for interior use, but finding the aluminium ‘X’ bars in the front and back of the frame a bit uncomfortable, jasper morrison decided to create one that was made specifically for the indoors by removing the ‘X’s. thus ‘fionda’ (meaning ‘sling’ in italian) was born. the british designer has perfected the wooden joints of the design so that they result in a light and strong frame, which can be stacked horizontally when the canvas covers which form the seats are taken-off. produced by italian company mattiazzi, ‘fionda’ comes in two models, a dining and lounge version, accompanied by a stackable table.

 

‘I am attracted to the language of camping and campaign furniture. it’s something about the lightness of structure and required efficiency in achieving something comfortable…’ – jasper morrison
