Concept

“Like many previous chair projects I have designed the Lightwood Chair is about structure, making use of the unbeatable craftsmanship of Maruni’s wood technology to achieve a light wooden structure. This can be completed with a variety of different solutions for the seat, starting with the lightest, a white mesh, which leaves the structure partially visible, then a woven webbing which reminds us of shaker furniture, except that it’s a synthetic webbing which makes an interesting contrast with the wood, and then the more traditional upholstered seat in fabric or leather, which provide extra comfort and can be removed for cleaning. It’s a contract chair which is equally suitable to the home.”

The latest addition to the Lightwood family is the armchair, a project which has taken some time to find its form. The idea was to integrate the armrest to the existing chair, with some adjustments to the width, using similar structural elements and jointing techniques.
