Tacchini New Collections: Family Portrait
The house is that space that responds to general functional parameters which then becomes the place of the inhabitant: transforming it into an environment codified on personal characteristics and removing it from the anonymity of a simple plan layout. Tacchini explores and addresses this phase of the home’s evolution and confronts the various environments with furnishing projects based on research, materials, and technology, but also with an ethical dialogue between the past and present of the design. In this experiential growth, Tacchini approaches the dining environment today: starting immediately from the spirit of conviviality, a concept that animates profoundly the whole project. Moreover, a common thread throughout the house tells of a history of living that retains all Tacchini’s philosophy: recognizing objects and designs, different in content and form, but involved in a sort of constant correspondence. Therefore, the dining room is a natural development of the living area: naturally for the flow of daily life and for forms and settings.
T–TABLE by Tobia Scarpa
Two simple elements skilfully fit into each other, a bond studied down to the smallest detail that connects the top and the legs to ensure maximum stability. T-Table confirms the solid understanding between Tacchini and Tobia Scarpa, with a collaboration that gives life to a new project that goes beyond re-editions: from the absolute sobriety of past projects to the specific needs of the contemporary world, an essential and elegant table, available in different sizes and finishes, which can be placed next to any seat.
DIALOGO by Tobia Scarpa
A rectangular frame with rounded edges, masterful joints, and strictly visible dowels and screws reinforces the typical double trestle structure by Tobia Scarpa. A chair with enveloping comfort – with attention to the smallest details even in the seat, where a small opening allows it to be lifted easily in a perfect – synthesis of elegance and rationality. Dialogo celebrates its 50th birthday with this re-edition by Tacchini: a tribute to the timeless lines that define it and to the great master who designed them.
ORPHEUS by Lorenzo Bini
An indefinite shape, a gesture, a single material. For this original dining table, Lorenzo Bini is inspired by the work of Cy Twombly and transforms it into a piece of contemporary design. A marble top – obtained by tracing a portion of the famous “Orpheus” painted in 1979 – supported by five legs – obtained by combining slightly staggered strips of the same marble – becomes an invitation to take a seat to pay homage to the work from which it took its shape and the artist who created it.
PARKER by Lorenzo Bini
Like “Orpheus” – the marble table born from the creativity of Lorenzo Bini – Parker takes up the indefinite shape of detail of Cy Twombly’s work but finds its own identity in the finishes. Here solid wood becomes the protagonist, suggesting the dimensions and offering unprecedented visible grains in the five legs obtained from two slightly staggered slats. Three elegant grooves are hidden under the edge of the top, three waves that are revealed only to the touch.
SEMPRONIA by Tobia Scarpa
Circular elements fit together in a double circle that evokes the signature of the great master who designed it. Twin legs, created by the intersection of two cylinders, extend up to the backrest, to which they are linked by a thin metal ring that blends harmony and functionality. The strong character of the 80s aesthetic does not give up the comfort of soft padding and a completely remodelled seat to be even more welcoming. Sempronia enriches the Tacchini re-editions with its determined and versatile presence, able to adapt to every table and situation, today, as yesterday.
TOGRUL by Gordon Guillaumier
A totem with a sculptural base, a perfect synthesis of momentum, solidity, and craftsmanship. For Togrul, Gordon Guillaumier goes beyond the limits of matter by combining original finishes in a table suitable for both domestic environments and contract spaces. The rigid polyurethane bases, available in different sizes, are covered with hand-trowelled cementitious material for a tactile and visual experience. The wooden top, available in a round and oval version, takes up the colour of the leg thanks to the painting and treatment with the same cementitious material for a natural monochrome effect.
ROMA NUVOLA by Jonas Wagell
Part of the Roma family, the collection of sofas inspired by the soft sign of a hemicycle curve signed by Jonas Wagell – Roma Nuvola makes the “classic” even more comfortable. The generous proportions and the built-in chaise longue, which almost seems to interrupt the linearity of the seat, are designed for absolute comfort, as is the soft rounded cushion that invites you to abandon yourself to relaxation. Other cushions of different sizes, to be positioned freely for always tailor-made comfort, to be created day after day.
JULEP SOFT by Jonas Wagell
Simple and imposing shapes, inspired by the Avant-garde of the 50s and made more graceful by contemporary traits. Proportions and volumes are in perfect balance, enhanced by meticulous attention to detail, the choice of materials, and the mastery of craftsmanship. With its welcoming lines, which find new expression in the fuller padding, redesigned to embrace the most absolute relaxation, Julep Soft joins the family of chairs designed by Jonas Wagell.
SESANN OTTOMAN by Gianfranco Frattini
Together with the armchair and sofa already featured in a Tacchini re-edition in 2015, the Sesann ottoman continues the story of a vision of contemporary living that invites you to appreciate the beauty and welcoming of the most authentic comfort. A visible structure in metal tubing contains, envelops, and enhances the padding in a large, soft, and continuous embrace. The sensual and harmonious shapes born from Frattini’s ingenious planning become unique in each piece thanks to the entirely handmade upholstery, available in a wide choice of colours and finishes.
TORII LOVE by Studiopepe
In the console designed by Studiopepe, the torii, the traditional Japanese portals, are re-discovered through new functions and meanings. In a succession of distant visions and emotions, essential elements combine in an imposing physicality given by a very thick top – which acts as an architrave with two legs that recall supporting columns.
COLOMBO and 1953 by Lorenzo Bini
In these consoles designed by Lorenzo Bini, modern and contemporary works are cap- tured by a marble slab in an irregularly shaped plane. A few details are enough, and the designs already defined in the lines traced by Jean Arp and Gianni Colombo take on a new expression. Three legs, created through the juxtaposition of four slightly offset strips of the same marble, support the tops and are a great homage to the art of these artists.
ALTAR by EWE Studio
Sculpture and functionality come together to rediscover the rich Mexican artisan heritage through innovative means and languages. Meticulous craftsmanship leaves marks and trajectories in the flat and pristine surfaces, while the senses are attracted by the recovery of natural materials and the unprecedented sensory contrasts that derive from them. Inspired by pre-Hispanic altars, these low tables, which are declinable in a wide range of finishes: ceramic, concrete and cedar wood, mark the first collaboration between Tacchini and EWE Studio, a project in which tradition is reflected in design to forge ideas that have substance and meaning.
TORUS by Umberto Bellardi Ricci
In the factory that produces his prototypes, Umberto Bellardi Ricci sees for the first time the elbows of the ventilation ducts, joined in groups of four and wrapped in crossed ropes. They have a curious shape, similar to that of a donut, and become a source of great inspiration for him. He calls them torus and reinterprets them as the basis for these singular poufs with overlapping volumes, in which industrial materials find a new aesthetic and function alongside soft and refined finishes.
TRONO by Umberto Bellardi Ricci
Exploring the dialogue between different materials, Umberto Bellardi Ricci gives life to a collection that stimulates the interaction between architecture and design. In Trono Pixel and Trono Pill two simple geometries, such as the cube and the circle, become the support – the throne – of the person who sits down on it. The generous shapes of the seat contrast with the essentiality of the leg in a clean structure that enhances the contrast between raw materials and refined textures and fabrics. A low table completes the family: supported by the same essential leg as the stools, it takes up the material contrast in the elegant round marble top.
VERTICAL NEST by Brian Thoreen
Soft folds become luminous sculptures that seem to grow naturally. The light diffuses calmly, and blurs perceptions and contours creating an atmosphere of peace and seductive mystery. Defying any definition of space, these creations in white polycarbonate – corner lamp and floor lamp born from the imagination of – Brian Thoreen, recover the suggestive Déco lines of the past in a form made possible only by the manipulation of contemporary materials.
MANO LIGHT by Umberto Bellardi Ricci
A metal sheet, simple and precise folds, a light. Inspired by the gesture of the hand protecting a candle flame, the Mano Light collection is designed as abstract sketches whose proportions can be adapted to different scales. Standing Mano is one of the protagonists of the series, a two-meter luminous sculpture, with a distinctive design and planning, which gives off a warm and enveloping light. Table Mano is an elegant and refined table lamp, of contained dimensions, which diffuses a discreet and delicate glow. Designed by Umberto Bellardi Ricci, Mano Light is available in two finishes, both with a polished stainless steel base.
FACKEL LIGHT by Umberto Bellardi Ricci
Fackel is the German word for the medieval wall torches that released naked flames on the walls of castles and convents. Inspired by these ancient lamps, Umberto Bellardi Ricci bends a metal bar in two points and lets it run parallel to the wall, onto which he projects a warm and suggestive glow, similar to the light of sunset, thanks to the LED strip positioned on the back of the bar.
EQUINOX and SOLSTICE by Studiopepe
A dense, almost mysterious light is filtered through soft and enveloping materials. Luminosity and transparencies fluctuate, creating repetitions of lights and shadows, solids, and voids. Inspired by Object Art and in particular by the works of Enrico Castellani, these elegant fiberglass sculptures – Solstice applique – and Equinox cocoon-suspension lamp – reinforce the strong understanding between Tacchini and Studiopepe.
KUSCHEL by Salem van der Swaagh
Kuschel writes a love letter to wool. It says that weaving can become a means of communicating and connecting with the surrounding environment, a practical and poetic, ancient and sustainable means, thanks to which the human spirit finds one of its purest and most genuine expressions. The texture comprises of intertwined and hand-knotted threads and fringes in warm or cold shades reflected in the wool and silk yarns for a tactile and visual experience rich in nuances and craftsmanship. With this precious wool rug available in two versions, Salem van der Swaagh signs her first collaboration with Tacchini.
LE MURA new color palette by Formafantasma
After the launch in 2022 of Mario Bellini’s iconic design, reissued with the brand, Le Mura is back in the spotlight at Milan Design Week 2023. The collaboration between Tacchini, Formafantasma and Rubelli, a company renowned for its fabric manufacturing expertise, confirms the timeless character of the sofa, with a contemporary twist. The two designers explore the concept of modularity of the sofa by selecting 9 colours in 3 shades of the Ombra fabric, a pure cotton velvet. A distinctive palette that perfectly enhances the design of the product, conceived to colour the entire composition in a single tone or build a stylistic dialogue between the modules dressed in the different colours. The proposal celebrates Le Mura modular sofa and confirms the care for upholstery that Tacchini has been pursuing for long time.
