Panama Bronze

2016
  • "Panama Bronze" is a limited edition straddling art and design, the result of the collaboration between the artist Mattia Biagi and Promemoria. The artist has poured hot tar on a real Panama chair, to bring the object closer to the material and to make it melt in the ground.

Art and craftsmanship

Mattia Biagi has created what he himself called the "polarity of destruction and conservation".

"Although the melted tar destroys the object it touches, in this case the Panama chair - an elegant and finely crafted object - it simultaneously preserves it in its new and very different form". This is how the original silhouette of the Panama chair was turned into its new incarnation.

Thanks to its experience in working with bronze, Promemoria has helped Mattia to refine his work of art, transforming the iconic Panama chair, designed by Romeo Sozzi, into a work of art. After being manually dipped in a lost wax casting, Panama Bronze is finished with a custom patina. The artisanal manufacturing process and the natural variations of the bronze make each piece unique.
