Originally known for its chairs, today Italcomma presents a highly differentiated collection of furniture and other objects. A complete range of chairs, armchairs, stools and sofas, 'revised' and 'corrected' according to the present tendencies, has been added to the first rigorous collection, represented by the original forms of the Thonet chairs.
Italcomma's aim is to reach an original harmony where the contemporary lines, the formal correctness and the 'reproducibility' of M. Thonet blend together. The end result is not the creation of a museum piece, but of an everyday object which can be found in every home.
Born under the sign of time, when nature too delivers its best fruits to the skilful hands of man, such refined and eternal forms of the bentwood items in beech created by Italcomma.
They tell the story of a man, Michael Thonet, who had the ingenious foresight to curve beech using steam and to sculpt in wood decorative motifs of incomparable beauty, capable of making objects of daily use seductive and unique.
Some of those factories are still working today and they still keep up the production according to the original methods devised by Thonet; the technique is the same, nothing has changed: every single piece is hand-made; even every woven item is still hand crafted and knots tied one by one.
