Cugino is an expertly constructed wooden object that is ‘not a stool’ and ‘not a low table’, but could in fact be both – Cugino will find its use over time.
Konstantin Grcic, who has a history in wood work, used the opportunity to experiment with the interplay of solidity and void to find a form that is open for interpretation, not given a function from the outset. It is not about structure, it is not about economy; it is a deliberate departure.
It relies on Mattiazzi’s skill with complex joinery, construction and fine finishing.
“Cugino is the result of many tries; it happened over time, with wanting it to be an object that we don’t already know, but also something that is maybe a little bit familiar.“ Konstantin Grcic

Among contemporary furniture manufacturers, Mattiazzi, the family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy, is uncommon. While many producers in that region rely on third party factories and work in diverse materials, Mattiazzi operates with their own machines and hands, and has developed a healthy obsession for woodworking. Since 1978, when brothers Nevio and Fabiano Mattiazzi founded the company, Mattiazzi has steadily cultivated its local manufacturing culture. Their network of wood shops is diverse enough to support any manufacturing process the brand may need. Every shop has its own focus, from milling to lacquering, and a particular process always belongs to a specific part of town. But don’t let the neighborhood approach confuse you: Mattiazzi is no backyard shop. Their highly specialized craftsmen operate the most sophisticated machinery available to the wood industry. An eight-axis CNC milling machine allows wood to take the complex shapes associated with injection-molded plastic. Operating such a machine is an art and Mattiazzi disproves the modern myth that mechanized manufacturing is not a craft.
