's new Radice stools for Italian manufacturer Mattiazzi fuse together the front-half of a traditional 4-legged stool with a single supporting back leg to create a three-legged hybrid.

Structurally sturdy but visually elegant,the Radice stools' construction is so solid that they are made without the use of screws or any metal fittings.

Radice marks the British design studio’s second collaboration with Mattiazzi. Sam Hecht of Industrial Facility comments: "Radice has some tension in its form and it is a slight surprise that the third leg works as well as it does to resolve the overall structure. It is in some ways structurally diagrammatic, yet is made comfortable visually and physically because of how this third leg supports the seat."

The backrest is small and reassuring, allowing a coat or handbag to rest on it; and the seat is open for large and small people.

Available in ash or oak, the stool’s warm color options-natural, black, branca green, red, and yellow mustard-are all inspired by the changing colors of leaves in the fall. Optional seat cushions are available in leather or Kvadrat Steelcut Trio.

About the Manufacturer: Since 1978 Mattiazzi has been a go-to manufacturer for other brands, known for making technically challenging products requiring expert woodworking know-how. Now the Italian company has started its own line of furniture with the help of Munich-based Studio Nitzan Cohen, which created designs that "push and exploit the potential of Mattiazzi's craft." The Mattiazzi brand is synonymous with woodworking: the company operates all their own factories with a network of wood shops each specializing in a particular process such as milling or lacquering.
