Filo Chair, designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Mattiazi, is a minimalist chair composed of solid beech and fabric cord. Its precisely placed lines and the tension of the materials make it a unique design. The repeating lines of the fabric cord add an extra graphic quality to Filo, offering a soft seating that adapts to your body shape. Sustainability is also an important theme – Mattiazzi’s smart construction technique reduces waste and maximizes the Filo chair’s strength by using less material.
Ronan (b. 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (b. 1976) are brothers and designers from Paris. They have been working together for about fifteen years, spurred on by their hard work and different personalities. In 1997 they were discovered by Cappellini and received their first design commissions for the industry. In 2000, they began a collaboration with the Galerie kreo, which led to a solo exhibition in 2001. Their works span a range of fields, from jewelry to spatial compositions and architecture to drawing and video and photographic works, from artisanal to industrial scales.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s works are part of the permanent collections of various international museums, and several monographic exhibitions are also dedicated to them.
