Organic and versatile in shape - the new Julep - by designer Jonas Wagell, is a natural extension in both practicality and beauty of the existing range of Julep best sellers. Updated in size, with even more distinct asymmetries, the new model looks like a chaise-longue, paired with an even larger and more enveloping round ottoman.
Like the other members of the Julep family, the new chaise-longue has a light structure, thanks to the recessed base that invisibly lifts it off the floor, without sacrificing any of its magnificent elegance and style.
The Julep sofa collection was first released in 2018 and announced Winner of Best Furniture in Archiproducts Design Awards 2018 as well as in Muuuz International Awards 2018.
The idea of flight as a metaphor for creative freedom is the conceptual fabric from which the products in the new Tacchini collection arise – emblematic of emancipation from fleeting fashions and the celebration of timeless, decontextualized creative intuition. Located in the vast expanses of the Turin Aero Club, at the foot of the Alps, the place where the application of the rigors of engineering and the art of knowing how to observe the world from unconventional perspectives intersect.
In contrast to the orderly geometry of the hangars and control towers, the Tacchini collection dialogs with the disciplined architecture of the aeronautic club, playing up the soft contours of the upholstered furniture and accessories.
Tacchini unveils the culture of beauty that is based on research and designs, ideas, arts and people. It showcases the dual spirit of the brand – the comfort of traditional methods, artisanal excellence that has consistently made Tacchini a benchmark in the Made in Italy landscape and outlines its fundamental values, and its innovative vision projected into the future, led by the pure ideal of creativity in all its forms, and determined to constantly transform itself in the quest for as yet unexplored horizons.
