Fronda is a new typology for Mattiazzi: a seat that also houses storage. Inspired by our contemporary, nomadic nature and the need in public places to accommodate personal items, Fronda offers a single wood shelf beneath its sculpted steel seat.

Fronda is the first Mattiazzi chair to use wood for structure and metal for its seat.

This inversion of material and function makes for a chair and a stool that are complimentary but individual in character. When placed side by side, the pine base creates a natural spacer that allows people to sit next to each other comfortably.

“The metal seat takes Mattiazzi to a new place – an experiment that has some of the qualities of those beautiful Japanese copper and cypress washing buckets. What’s next is to see where Fronda can live”, says co-designer Sam Hecht.

“It’s a very practical piece for how we might work or eat at a long table, when we also need a place to put something we carry”, says co-designer Kim Colin

London, UK

Sam Hecht was born in London in 1969. His training began at the Central Saint Martins School of Art. His interest in industrial design and architecture led him to apprenticeships including David Chipperfield. Hecht thus began to define the style that characterises his personality as a designer. A profound search for the essential, acute observation of the world we live in and a belief that simplicity can be inspirational. In 1993 he completed his masters at the Royal College of Art, followed by 3 years in California with Ideo, and 3 years in Tokyo. This period involved the collaborations with Naoto Fukasawa, producing some startling product typologies over the course of 6 years.

In 2002, he co—founded Industrial Facility with his partner Kim Colin. He began to work with Manufacturers, and the number of clients increased in just a few years. For Muji Japan he created the “Second Phone” (2004), which led to him being invited to become retained designer for World Muji. For Taylor’s Eye Witness, a Sheffield company, he also became main designer producing notable sequels to Robert Welch’s work, selected for the Museum fűr Kunsthandwerk, Frankfurt and awarded the Design Plus and of Gold Prize for 2006. More recently he has been appointed design advisor to Herman Miller. Between 2006 — 10, he acted as senior tutor at the Royal College of Art, London, forming Platform 12 and in 2011 was appointed visiting professor of HFG Karlsruhe in Germany. in 2010 he was awarded the ‘Designs of the Year’ for the Branca chair.
