This Salone, Made in Ratio will present the Alpha chair, a solid-wood all-purpose chair produced using the latest production technologies of shaped wooden furniture.
The name Alpha is derived from the strong architectural gesture that gives the chair its inherent strength: the A shaped structure of the back legs and backrest. The site-specific installation at via Palermo 11, which was originally built in the 17th Century as an icehouse for the Brera district and modified into a family run wood workshop almost a 100 years ago, will debut the Alpha chair alongside products from the first two collections, including the renowned Supernova desk, Cowrie Chair and Cowrie Rocker. Made in Ratio’s passion for making will be brought to the forefront by presenting beautifully designed and crafted furniture forms amongst a fully functioning workshop. The vaulted ceiling and exposed features will act as a dramatic backdrop to the refined and carefully considered objects on show.
