Tacchini Flock by Formafantasma
On the occasion of Milano Design Week 2023, Tacchini teams up again with Formafantasma in the pursuit of greater sustainability. At Capsule Plaza, the brand presents Tacchini FLOCK, a project installation conceived and curated by Formafantasma. Reworking upholstered seating from the inside, Formafantasma introduces a more sustainable, nature-based process for the manufacture of iconic Tacchini designs, with a technique inspired by antique mattress production, using surplus sheep’s wool to replace industrial foam. In combination with natural latex, the non-polluting sheep’s wool provides softness and stuffing utilizing a natural material that has paradoxically been treated as a waste product.
“We want to offer quintessential Tacchini designs with a new approach to upholstered stuffing, improving the products with a natural solution that supports small producers,” say Simone Farresin and Andrea Trimarchi of Formafantasma.
