Tacchini leads the way in sustainability
Tacchini Italia has been listed among the eight brands leading the way in sustainability by Dezeen, the most influential architecture and design magazine nowadays, a reference point for international design community: “With environmental issues such as climate change and plastic pollution dominating the headlines, what are design brands doing to help the planet?”.
As an advocate of the zero miles policy, Tacchini has all of its products manufactured in the rural area of Brianza between Milan and Como, where it is headquartered. All of the company’s materials and semi-finished products come from a zone of around 50 kilometres of the Tacchini plant, keeping the pollution and energy consumption produced from their transport at a minimum level. In recent years Tacchini has started to incorporate more reusable, recyclable and renewable materials in its furniture. For example, the company recently launched a collection of Joaquim tables by Italian-Brazilian designer Giorgio Bonaguro made from recycled marble taken from the waste of other industries.
Tacchini and the environment
All Tacchini products are manufactured in the verdant area of Brianza between Milan and Como, with its strong tradition of Italian manufacture and craft. All the materials and semi-finished products come from a zone of about 50 km around the Tacchini plant and this, as well as allowing direct control of their quality, also enables the pollution and energy consumption deriving from their transport to be reduced to a minimum. A special feature which makes Tacchini an even more special name, also as regards the eco-sustainability of the furniture.
