Geometry was the primary source of inspiration for the versatile Fronzoni ’64 chair, designed by the master of minimalism A.G. Fronzoni during his quest to eliminate all excessive components from objects of design. This seat is a conceptual furnishing element, composed of a series of squares and straight lines that cut cleanly through space, as if they were drawn with a ruler. The essential lines are precisely what make this chair so well-suited and adaptable to every setting.
The Fronzoni ’64 chair has a base of square tubular metal, with a seat made of white or anthracite matte-lacquered wood.
"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".
Starting from these main points, the graphic designer born in Pistoia, has been strongly active in interior design, in graphics, exhibitions and didactics.
