WINNER of the Icon Awards 2012 Furniture Design of the Year.
The Medici Chair created quite a stir when it was introduced to the world in 2012.
The chair was inspired by its most essential component—wood. In the designer Konstantin Grcic’s own words, “I was looking for a distinct grammar for my design, a language that would express the characteristics of wood. I liked the idea of working with planks. They signify the very beginning of the production process – a tree trunk that is cut into slices. I like the way in which a carpenter joins wood. It is immediate and direct. The construction remains visible and easy to read. Structure turns into form”.
MEDICI is a low chair with a comfortably reclined posture. Its generous dimensions give it an embracing confidence. The chair can be used as a solitary piece of furniture or in small groups, both indoors and out. It is produced in three different woods: American walnut, Douglas fir, and thermo-treated ash, a wood that is suitable for outdoors.
