S2 model is inspired by Thonet Program 209 characterized by the sinuous frame of steamed solid bentwood. The S02 chair is made with pieces CNC that are cut, hand-welded from 10 mm thick iron slabs and finally painted in grey.
Michael Thonet revolutionized the concept of the woodwork in the Victorian era, by inventing the "bentwood furniture", and in the same way the VARIAZIONIDIFERRO collection will attempt to renew the traditional production of furniture in metal profiles and the way in which they are designed and built. To cut and assemble metal parts, using hand-welding according to the book, allows the generation of indeterminate variations with similar results to other manufacturing techniques, such as three-dimensional printing or investment casting.
Concept and design / Vittorio Venezia
Collaboration in the Project / Carolina Martinelli
