With the Tronco range by Sam Hecht, Mattiazzi are interested in the frisson between solid panel construction and the truly skilled craft of its making. It is unlike previous designs for Mattiazzi that have a sculptural softness; Tronco’s character is formed from solid strips of wood in what appears as very elementary construction, yet its simplicity is the result of iterative experimentation and a high regard for material honesty. Tronco is made with the same extraordinary level of attention to detail that Mattiazzi is now known for. The Tronco chair features a new level of function for a solid wood chair: stacking 10-high and connecting in long rows. Tronco has surprisingly natural comfort and works well in multiples, not just alone. Its form is modest enough so that it takes on the appearance of ‘texture’ when shown in numbers. It lifts the atmosphere of interior spaces that require many chairs, whether it is a dining hall or a chapel. Tronco, in effect, creates a terrain of its own in any architecture. A range of coloured stains help to bring out the ash grain and add further dimension. Like the Tronco chair, the table is similarly made and chamfered at the edges so that it can join easily with others. With one or many, Tronco evokes solidity rather than frame.
