Clerkenwell Design Week highlights: Tacchini
Established in 1965, Tacchini is known for its high quality contemporary designs. The two products that stood out for us were “Kelly” and “Galleria”
GALLERIA by Pearson Lloyd
A steel bar with a vaguely industrial feel, onto which one can fasten elements made of highly characterful materials: wood, leather, fabric and metal painted in primary geometric forms that give rise to always different architectures, both fascinating and surprising. Galleria is the new project by the Pearson Lloyd studio for Tacchini: a system that lets you create any solution from a simple linear bench, to an angular two-seater, to a peaceful island as a waiting area, or designed for relaxation and conviviality. Each composition can be used as stand-alone or in groups, in an effort to simplify and at the same time enhance the public spaces of any size, in keeping with its architecture, its routes and its functions. A language rich in colours and materials can arouse a wealth of emotions: from natural tones to classic shades, right through to the more vivid and unconventional hues.
KELLY by Claesson Koivisto Rune
“Inspiration does not follow regular routes. Only with hindsight does inspiration seem indeed logical. One thing is true, though: inspiration is a source of inspiration.” With these words – at the same time playful and profound – designers Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune sum up the coming into being of the Kelly project – a new chapter in their collaboration with Tacchini. Pure and bright colours, organic shapes, friendly and wholesome feelings enliven a wealth of sensible furnishing suggestions for domestic spaces and public areas, thanks to the unique blend of creativity harnessed by the Swedish designers and the sheer quality, team-working skills and attention to detail that have always distinguished this Italian company. Three seating furnishings are showcased: each with its own personality, playing on different-sized backrests and seats, suspended upon sleek metal frames, melding vintage settings and modern art inspirations. Their shapes, as well as color shades available are designed to stand alone or to conjure freely-inspired matches and compositions – whether in the home or in the world of contract supplies.
