Chiaro is a minimalist design created by New York-based designer Leon Ransmeier. As with many words, Chiaro has several definitions: clear, bright, and straightforward. Chairs by nature are straightforward – the proportions of a seat and back suggest a place to sit, and regardless of their formal language, most of the time we know what to do with them. Beyond physical function, furniture has a powerful ability to transform atmosphere. Sophisticated manufacturing technology and handcraft give Mattiazzi the rare ability to shape wood in almost any form. Although I was extremely tempted to explore those boundaries, Chiaro is not a radical chair.
