Tacchini’s stand at the Milan Furniture Fair had some of the show’s most exciting products, including the Bianca chair and Isola chairs and tables. Each product is comfortable and beautifully designed, suitable for either residential or commercial projects.
The Bianca chair was designed in 1939 by Franco Albini as an addition to the furnishings of the Villa Monzino on Lake Como. It has an ash timber frame that comes in five different stains – natural, white, walnut, charcoal and black – and can be upholsered in fabric or leather.
The Isola chair is made from cold-moulded, fire-retardant polyurethane strengthened by an internal metal structure. The upholstery can be any fabric or leather the specifier chooses. The solid mild steel sled frame is available in either polished chrome or powdercoated colour – black, white, grey and chocolate. The table may be placed on either the right or left side of the lounge and is available in white marble or black travertine.
Both chairs are available through Stylecraft in Australia, with a twelve-week lead time.
Tacchini was established in 1965 by Antonio Tacchini. The company quickly gained a reputation for its high-quality contemporary design. These days, Tacchini is a leader in the furniture business, known for its constant research, project and product culture and care for people and the environment.
The company now occupies new headquarters designed by Roberto Grossi and set in the countryside between Como and Milan. The building, consisting of two floors that display the Tacchini collections and facilitate its sales and manufacturing activities, gives physical expression to the company’s central philosophy, which is to “give space to ideas and quality to space.”
