Osso is a new series of chairs designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for the Italian brand Mattiazzi. The chairs are made of oak, maple or ash, but it’s their production process that I find interesting. The pieces are milled by a digitally controlled CNC machine. This is probably one of the few ways to produce this design on a larger scale.

Ausgebrannt is a series of stools and low tables by Kasper Hamacher. I actually don’t really like them, but the production process looks like fun. By the way, ausgebrannt is German for burnt out.
