Pigreco Numbered Limited Edition

Pigreco is an unparalleled piece of cult design, because it is the fruit of a thought, rather than simply the need to achieve an objective. It is an iconic chair that conveys a sense of lightness in which nothing is revealed and everything is implicit, in a series of interplaying forms that express the elegance of the ratio hidden behind simple, durable lines, as avant-garde now as it was over sixty years ago. Designed in 1959 as a thesis project, Pigreco heralds the modern, refined aesthetic of one of the greatest Italian architects and designers of the last century; the exclusive reissue produced by Tacchini comes in a limited edition of just 200 numbered pieces, made of Canaletto walnut with a seat covered in Loro Piana fabric, bearing the great architect’s signature.

Tobia Scarpa

Tobia Scarpa (Venice 1935) works in the field of architecture, design and restoration. Tobia Scarpa graduated in architecture from the University of Venice in 1969 and in that same year won the “Compasso d’Oro”. He has received many other awards as a designer. Some of his works are also on display in the world’s most important museums. With regard to architecture he works with public and private clients, such as the Benetton Group for which he designed the entire industrial complex. The designs for Benetton are still today considered an aesthetic-functional paradigm and a shining example of industrial architecture (work displayed at the 2012 Biennale in Venice).
