Tacchini New Collection 2018
Tacchini Italia new collection for the Salone del Mobile 2018, has the aim of transforming every space into a comfortable place, where it is a pleasure to spend time. Again this year, the company did’nt want to give up on its collaborations with the world’s leading designers and, presenting the same high quality and research that distinguishes Tacchini from the other furnishing companies, it has developed solutions suitable for both domestic and contract markets. Among the novelties of the Tacchini Italia 2018 Collection is Memory Lane by Christophe Pillet and the upholstered family of sofas Julep, designed by Jonas Wagell. Additionally, as part of this collection is the re-edition of the Tacchini 831 armchair by designer Gianfranco Frattini, named Lina.
Julep (cat. Sofa, Armchair, Chaise-longue, Ottoman) designed by Jonas Wagell
A family of upholstered sofas characterised by soft and enveloping shapes and by a contemporary, romantic and feminine allure, Julep is inspired by the Avant-Garde furniture of the Fifties, from which it recovers its simplicity and majesty. The family’s showpiece is the sofa, with its rounded and generous shape, from which the entire collection has then developed – an armchair, a three seater sofa and a footstool – in a game of proportions and volumes which has led to many expressive variations – like the three seater sofa featuring an oversize seat and the sofa with an integrated chaise longue. Fully upholstered, the seats look warm and voluptuous, yet light, thanks to their recessed base which lifts them invisibly from the ground. Their welcoming appearance invites to intimity and rest.
Lina (cat. Armchair) designed by Gianfranco Frattini (1954)
The 831 armchair is one of the first pieces of furniture designed by Gianfranco Frattini – master of the italian Design who will be celebrated this year by the Triennale during Milan International Salone del Mobile – and that has been re-edited by Tacchini on the occasion of Milan Design Week 2018. Produced by Cassina in 1954, the 831 armchair was flagged the following year for the Compasso d’Oro Awards and it’s characterised by a very particular wooden structure that gives it a solid yet light appearance at the same time.
Memory Lane (cat. Chair) designed by Christophe Pillet
Christophe Pillet has designed a timeless, all-round chair, yet very simple in its design. The elegance of Memory Lane lies in its semplicity: the slender metal structure and the refined quilted padding, with elastic straps that remain visible in the back of the seat. The concept of this chair is to allow beauty and comfort to coexist.
