Born from the collaboration between Promemoria and the artist Mattia Biagi, PANAMA BRONZE is a unique and limited edition piece, completely made in a bronze fusion.
For several years Mattia Biagi has worked with tar, creating various pieces.
The PANAMA chair which was designed by Romeo Sozzi, was "upholstered" in tar by the artist, the Promemoria craftsmen then finalised the work by adding bronze fusion.
Mattia Biagi was born in Ravenna, Italy, in 1974 and for the last ten years has lived in Los Angeles. He has studied the disciplines of art and design. His knowledge of different cultures, passion for photography, art, fashion and architecture, have bestowed in him a unique personal aesthetic taste based on influences from many disciplines in the arts.
He was inspired by tar from a visit to the La Brea Tar Pits, a natural geological site with various deposits of tar and fossils.
