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.

  • the connection between the legs and seat is so nice, but the seat is so disappointing. was that really your best idea?

    nick
  • I think maybe this isn’t best chair of r&e bourollec? Don’t you?

    Angel
  • Very sophisticated but quite horrible.

    Marc
  • nicey,

  • “is made up of four identical panels”
    simply not true, each panel is very different. 4 sets of tooling if moulded or 4 different cnc paths if milled.

    just tell it like it is.

    on the plus side, the legs are paired

    nicey
  • incl. a predetermined breaking point – that is new

    max
  • SOLAR POWERED? FOR REAL?

    NICE
