Nominated for Designs of the Year Furniture Award 2011
Brit Insurance Furniture Award 2011: Branca, Industrial Facility, Sam Hecht, Kim Colin and Ippei Matsumoto, Italy.
The Branca chair, designed by Industrial Facility and manufactured by Italian brothers Mattiazzi was intended to look familiar to the eye. Mimicking the natural growth patterns of twigs and branches, the Branca backrest and armrests seem to grow seamlessly from just one piece of wood. Carved robotically with work overseen by expert craftsmen at the Mattiazzi factory in Italy, the Branca chair complies to all modern expectations, light enough to carry, easy enough to stack and transport.
