Renowned French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created ‘Quindici’—a minimalist, functional chair inspired by the silhouette of the human body.

The Bouroullec brothers are renowned for their distinctive approach to industrial design. As two of France’s most innovative creators, their prolific approach to design is one that focuses on crafting individual, refined, functional pieces. The pair has created designs for multiple manufacturers and brands such as Vitra, Kvadrat, Alessi, and Samsung. For ‘Quindici’, the brothers collaborated with acclaimed Italian manufacturers Mattiazzi. Founded in 1979 by siblings Nevio & Fabiano Mattiazzi, the company has continued to retain a distinguished reputation known for its use of traditional materials coupled with environmentally friendly methods of production. ‘Quindici’ is the third in a series of collaborative projects with the Italian manufacturer. Its predecessors ‘Uncino’ and ‘Osso’ explored the possibilities of computerized manufacturing, whereas ‘Quindici’ is designed with traditional materials and methods in mind. Constructed from ash and plywood, the ergonomic design is influenced by the silhouette of the human form and designed for relaxation and reflection.
