Among contemporary furniture manufacturers, Mattiazzi, the family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy, is uncommon. Mattiazzi operates with their own machines and hands, and has developed a healthy obsession for woodworking. Since 1979, when brothers Nevio and Fabiano Mattiazzi founded the company, Mattiazzi has steadily cultivated its local manufacturing culture. Their highly specialized craftsmen operate the most sophisticated machinery available to the wood industry. Operating such machines is an art and Mattiazzi disproves the modern myth that mechanized manufacturing is not a craft.
