Sesann

A reissue of a historic design by Gianfranco Frattini, Sesann is a collection of sofas and armchairs with soft, cosy forms that evoke feelings of warmth and sensuality, thanks to the tubular metal frame, which acts as an architectural structure, enveloping, containing and accentuating the cushioning. Sesann commands its space with its bold volumes and elegant, sophisticated design. With a choice of leather or fabric coverings to create striking combinations of colours and textures between the cushions, frame and ash wood feet.

Gianfranco Frattini

Gianfranco Frattini was born in Padua, Italy, on 15th May, 1926. He graduated in Architecture, at the Politecnico, Milan, in 1953. At the end of the 50’s, he is one of the founders of ADI, Association for Industrial Design. Frattini opened his own studio in Milan, after working in the office of his teacher and mentor Gio Ponti. In few years, he became an industrial designer, well-known worldwide. Among his many successful projects, in 1956 designed the chair model 849, nominated for the “Compasso d’Oro” Prize. Now, this armchair, which takes shapes from the original design, is proposed by Tacchini with the name of “Agnese”.
