fronzoni chair

Design A.G. Fronzoni, 1964
Metal square tube, fiber conglomerate
Made in Italy by Cappellini

"We need to aim at essential things, to remove every redundant effects, every useless flowering, to elaborate a concept on mathematical bases, on fundamental ideas, on elementary structures; we strongly need to avoid waste and excess". -A.G. Forzoni

Originally designed in 1964, the Forzoni chair is made of metal square tube with a seat in lacquered wood. Available matte lacquered in white or anthracite or in the novel versions matte lacquered in India blue, sun-yellow and cherry-red.

With a goal to reduce waste and excess, graphic designer A.G. Forzoni has devoted himself to the communicate of his goals. Born in Pistoia, he has been strongly active in magazines such as Punta and Casabella, in the interior design, in graphics, exhibitions and didactics. He worked as a teacher first at the Società Umanitaria, then in the Istituto d' Arte of Monza and the Istituto delle Industrie Artistiche in Urbino, finally in his own school in Milan. Brno, Buenos Aires, Lion, Milan and New York were the sets of his several personal exhibitions; many of his graphics works are part of the most important museums worldwide.

Born into a family of furniture manufacturers, Giulio Cappellini began working for the family company in 1979, after earning his degree in architecture and studying business management. By the early 1980’s, Guilio’s leadership brought the Cappellini company into the world market from its three decade run as a handicraft furniture business. Hoping to expand the styles and materials used, Guilio scouted designers, bringing Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Marcel Wonders, Marc Newson, and Tom Dixon into the fold. Now, the firm boasts a varied, comprehensive collection rather than a singular style. Still, there are common threads: refined simplicity, dynamism, liveliness, humor.
