Description

Radice is a three-legged wooden stool, the result of Industrial Facility and Sam Hecht's second collaboration with Italian furniture producer Mattiazzi. The studio decided to push Matiazzi further into the exploration of robot-craftsmanship, but this time to challenge structure as a diagrammatic concept as well. Radice finds its underlying beauty and simplicity in its structure. It is the bringing together of what appears the front-half of a traditional four-legged stool, with a single back leg - the "root."

It is a visual improvisation, where two things meet unexpectedly. Radice has tension in its form and it is a slight surprise that the third leg works as well as it does to resolve the overall structure. It could be viewed as structurally diagrammatic, yet is made comfortable visually and physically because of how its third leg supports the seat. The backrest is small and reassuring, allowing a coat or handbag to rest on it while the seat is open for large and small individuals. It is light both visually and in weight, using no screws or metal fittings, yet also passing stringent BIFMA standards to ensure it is structurally sound, stable, and reliable.
