Mattia Bonnetti is known for creating innovative pieces of furniture that are as much works of fine art as they are utilitarian objects. He employs a wide range of materials, often in surprising ways, as with “Denim Armchair” (2007), a beech wood chair upholstered with salvaged blue jeans and wrapped humorously with a leather belt. In “Drops Table” (2007), walnut wood and acrylic resin are integrated seamlessly to produce a visually striking yet fully functional dining table.
