Mattiazzi Leva Dining Chair

Inspired by the efficiency of the form and materiality of an oar, Leva is designed ergonomically:

its steam-bent arms, made of a single piece of machined timber, are slightly inclined, widening in the middle to form a comfortable, supportive backrest.

Leva’s seemingly simple shape is the result of complex surfacing that optimises the chair for mass production. The sparing use of material is rooted in the idea of sustainability – to do more with less.

“The chair remains the archetypal furniture piece and one of the most difficult objects to design, requiring a deep understanding of form and comfort. It must be pleasing to the eye, able to fit a variety of settings from living rooms to restaurants, comfortable to sit on, and durable enough to last generations.” Mike Holland, Head of Industrial Design, Foster + Partners.
