Design by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2011.
Made in Italy by Mattiazzi.
Designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec say that it's the quality of the wood that makes the object. When designing their Osso Chair, they focused on letting the sensuality of the wood express itself. Sculpting and polishing the wood using highly sophisticated digital control equipment yields a surface that invites touch. The high-tech assembling system of geometrical wood panels allows a singular strength while preserving the design balance of the object.
Select from nine wood finishes.
Sinuous and highly sculpted, the Osso Chair features geometrical wood panel seating that is supremely durable and comfortable. Available in 8 frame finishes. A Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec design.

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him.
Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own design firm. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organization of interior space.View other products by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec
