Name: Radice Stool
Designer: Industrial Facility
Location: London, England
Radice Stool is a minimalist design created by England-based design firm Industrial Facility. Radice is the outcome of Industrial Facility’s continued close work with Italian furniture producer Mattiazzi and will be presented during the Salone in Milan this year. Its beauty lies in the unexpected combination of the front-half of a traditional 4-legged stool with a single back leg, which results in both a surprisingly light and comfortable structure.
Radice is a three-legged wooden stool, the result of Industrial Facility’s second collaboration with Italian furniture producer Mattiazzi. Unlike many other Italian producers, Mattiazzi keeps all the facets of wood production under one roof. By default, they have become a rare company that is able to shape wood as if it were plastic, while embracing ever-increasing challenges through their own R&D. Industrial Facility have continued to push Mattiazzi further into the exploration of robot-craftsmanship – following on from their first collaboration with the Branca Chair.
