Wallpaper, stylized Wallpaper*, is a Time Inc. publication focusing on design and architecture, fashion, travel, art, and lifestyle. The magazine was launched in London in 1996. Inside the October ’18 issue, Tacchini has the pleasure to be featured with an editorial with one of the next iconic pieces of its collection: Lina, the armchair by Gianfranco Frattini presented at the Salone del Mobile 2018.

Lina is a re-edition of one of the earliest projects designed by Gianfranco Frattini, one of the great masters of Italian design. Nominated in 1955 for the Compasso d’oro, the armchair features an unusual wood frame that lends it a solid, yet lightweight, appearance. Its singularity lies in the slender legs and bent plywood element that supports the side of the seat back and curves up to become the ‘wing’ upon which the armrests sit. A very innovative workmanship technique for its time, carried out today with historical accuracy.

An armchair that makes a bold statement, thanks to its timeless style, Lina can be paired with unaffected ease with all the sofas in the Tacchini collection, in residential and contract settings.
