Pastilles by Studiopepe for Tacchini
The new project with Studiopepe is a collaboration with designers Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto, the creative minds behind the consultancy. It follows the successful Milan Fuorisalone event earlier this year which featured ‘Club Unseen’, an imaginary cocktail bar with retro furniture and cool music. Pastilles is a collection of small armchairs, ottomans and coffee tables, with soft and enveloping shapes that bring back childhood memories, the sweets. A contemporary reinterpretation of the classic cockpit armchair, with a sinuous shell that contains the seat and that gives excellent comfort to the design. Completed by two tables of different sizes and an ottoman, these elements create a matched family of shapes that can be used as a system or as single objects.
Giusi Tacchini, CEO of Tacchini, says: ‘We are delighted to be working with Studiopepe on a brand new project designed for the contract market and to be officially unveiling it at Orgatec – Cologne this month.’
By creating what the designers describe as a ‘round and comfortable shape’ on a high base, Pastilles is intended to be cosy and contemporary. — Wallpaper*
Internationally recognized for its eclectic and multi-faceted approach, Studiopepe adopts an imaginative and multidisciplinary approach towards the world of design. The studio’s distinctive signature is eloquently expressed in all the heterogeneous projects in which it has been engaged: large-scale projects in the hôtellerie field, the creation of displays for showrooms, boutiques and fair booths, or the interior design of private homes. Founded in 2006, the agency has maintained a highly recognizable identity based upon experimenting, citations and unexpected thought associations which are aimed at fostering unique projects that respect the individuality of the Client. Studiopepe’s projects are characterized by a strong emotional and aesthetic impact, based upon the finding the ideal balance between formal rigour and poetic vision, the ceaseless search to blend contemporary languages and codes. In the Studio’s works, the unexpected becomes a constant: the bold interplay between materials, fields of colour that become the expression of space, and details that are no longer mere decoration, but delicately woven storytelling.
