Neil Chair

Designed 2020 | 2021

Neil Textile

A new look for the Neil family, designed by Jean Marie Massaud in 2018 and now becoming an icon of essentiality. Today, the family welcomes the new Neil Textile version with fabric upholstery, paired and simply stretched on the steel frame.

This seat celebrates simplicity, lightness and easily suits different interior contexts.
In Neil Textile the tailoring skill is expressed in the wide choice of fabrics available, enhanced by visible stitching in matching colours, enhancing the design of the seat.
The aesthetics and comfort of Neil Textile is also in the stool version, available in two heights, suitable to connote more informal environments in combination with kitchens, bar counters and high tables.

The Neil collection is also characterised by its sustainable nature. The materials used are 100% recyclable and the seats can be easily disassembled for proper recycling. Sustainability is one of the values that guide several of the French designer's projects: the use of quality materials, combined with values such as expertise and smart production systems, make the product long-lasting and limit waste.


The load-bearing steel frame of the seat and backrest is available in black chrome glossy galvanic finish or in matt white or lead black colour powder painted.


The fabric upholstery, coupled and simply stretched on the frame, is characterized by riveted seams and colour matching aesthetic stitching on the seat and back, decorations that emphasise the tension and the pattern.
The upholstery fabric is removable.
This product is only suitable for indoor use.

Neil Leather

Elegant, light, sophisticated: Neil Leather is the natural evolution of Neil, an icon of essentiality born in 2018 by the hand of Jean Marie Massaud. A project in continuous evolution that in 2019 gave birth to Neil Twist armchair and in 2020 to Neil Twist chair.

Innate class and an international style characterize the products created by the French designer for MDF Italia, which today are enriched with a new proposal designed for wide living spaces, but also to characterise domestic environments with extreme elegance.

Neil Leather pays close attention to details, to the research of proportions and comfort.
The bearing steel frame, available in glossy black chrome finish, draws a simple and light architecture, while the thick full grain leather covering dresses it and creates a welcoming seat.

Sartorial details, such as the seams in heavy duty thread and the dyed edges, enhance the exclusive qualities of the leather and its processing, 100% made in Italy.
A product that combines traditional design and craftsmanship, able to fit into different environment, the most classic or the most modern and contemporary.


The load-bearing structure of the seat and backrest is made in steel wire and available in a glossy galvanic finish in black chrome.


The thick full grain saddle-hide is simply stretched taut between the parts of the structure and guarantees unexpected comfort even though it has a simple, definite form.  
The product is made completely by hand, entirely in Italy, a guarantee of high quality craftsmanship and great attention to detail: seams in heavy duty thread, dyed edges, and pressed areas on the leather surface form raised decorations that emphasise the tension and pattern.

The saddle-hide upholstery is not removable.
This product is only destined for indoor use.

Jean Marie Massaud graduated at ENSCI in 1990 (National Institute of Industrial Design); after his first intuitions, he longed for synthesis, reduction and lightness. His interest concerned various aspects of design: from furniture to industrial products and accessories.

In 2000 he opened the studio Massaud and started to extend his activity to architecture and development strategy. He worked in the most varied sectors, from B&B Italia, Axor Hansgrohe, Lancome, to Renault.

With his creations he aims to shape man and the surrounding environment. This unlimited inventor is committed, also politically, and tries to turn any project into an experience of life and economic scenery where desire and responsibility come together.
