Mattiazzi disproves the modern myth that mechanised manufacturing is not a craft.

For thirty years Mattiazzi worked exclusively as a subcontractor for other brands and built a reputation in the furniture industry for making the most challenging wooden products. They bring their expertise with them as they take their first steps into the role of an independent, holistic brand.

Mattiazzi, is a family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy and operates with their own machines and hands. Their network of wood shops is diverse enough to support any manufacturing process the brand may need. Their highly specialized craftsmen operate the most sophisticated machinery available to the wood industry. An eight-axis CNC milling machine allows wood to take the complex shapes associated with injection-molded plastic.
