Guided by the desire to create coherent and balanced designs, the meticulous work of Mario Ferrarini has shaped a new chair with refined and synthetic proportions.
The shape of its metal structure represents a clear tribute to the elegance of the compass and the perfection of the draftsman’s square typically found in the architectural arena.
Ferrarini’s new design is a convenient option for projects that require excellent functionality and durability over time (educational spaces, coffee shops, meeting rooms, homes…), and can additionally be stacked in large quantities.
Metaphorically, Quadra is made up of two profiles that manage to complement each other in perfect harmony. Two dancers in dialog with the architectural space, narrowing their position and creating movement measured in the shape of a structure, to which is added a wooden seat as a counterpoint and source of warmth. Without any visible screws, it offers the sturdiness of a chair ready for heavy use.
Mario Ferrarini was born in Como, Italy, in 1978.
Graduated in Industrial Design at the Politecnico of Milan he began practicing as a consultant for a number of renowned design studios. In 2007, he starts is own career opening a studio ﬁrst in Como, Italy, and then in Lugano, Switzerland, working alongside international companies on diﬀerent projects ranging from industrial products, furniture and interior design, supporting leading companies such as Antoniolupi, Castelli, Crassevig, Desalto, de Sede, Franke, Jacuzzi, Ligne Roset, Living Divani, Poltrona Frau, Viccarbe and others.
The studio works alongside companies to create products that
are timeless and transcend passing trends, targeted ﬁnding long-lasting solutions for clients with production aimed towards a large consumer market.
Balance is a principle goal in the global concept and products are a result of the technical, aesthetic and functional solutions they use in designing them aiming for purity, with the subtlety that deﬁnes the approach, attitude and orientation, and is part of their acclaimed distinguishing features.
