Among contemporary furniture manufacturers, Mattiazzi, the family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy, is uncommon. While many producers in that region rely on third party factories and work in diverse materials, Mattiazzi operates with their own machines and hands, and have developed a healthy obsession for woodworking. Since 1978, when brothers Nevio and Fabiano Mattiazzi founded the company, Mattiazzi has steadily cultivated its local manufacturing culture. Their highly specialized craftsmen operate the most sophisticated machinery available to the wood industry.
For thirty years Mattiazzi worked exclusively as a subcontractor for other brands and built a reputation in the furniture industry for making the most challenging wooden products. They bring their expertise with them as they take their first steps into the role of an independent, holistic brand. They hired a young Munich based office, Studio Nitzan Cohen, to design their first pieces and since then the Bouroullec brothers and Konstantin Grcic have designed their own collections. These designs push and exploit the potential of Mattiazzi’s craft.
