MODEL Officina
DESIGNER Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2016



Forging, the process used to shape iron,
pressing it between the hammer and anvil,
has a history that stretches back over
millennia. Throughout the ages, this
technique has been used to create an infinite
number of everyday objects and decorative
artefacts. The Officina collection of tables
explores the possibility of establishing a
new creative language while working with an
ancient fabrication process such as iron
After the tables launched at the last Salone
del Mobile, this year the collection
expands to include a chair and stools that
echo the forged iron structure of the tables,
combined with shells in a range of different
materials. Once again, absolute simplicity
combines with the allure of a raw material
handed down through the centuries, alive,
with those slight imperfections that make
each piece in this collection unique, with an
unmistakably industrial feel, but combined
with a profoundly refined and elegant spirit.
