Tacchini Sesann Armchair Designed by Gianfranco Frattini

$7,316per item

About

An icon of Italian design in the 1970s, the Sesann collection by Gianfranco Frattini was part of a new vision of contemporary living in which ergonomics were adapted to social change, ushering in a way of sitting that is more relaxed and less stiffly formal. Today, as then, it is an open invitation to the beauty of comfort in its most authentic expression. Sesann is the absolute epitome of softness. Frattini’s gifted design concept produces seating elements with sensual, generously harmonious, inviting shapes. It features an exposed, wrap-around chrome or powder-coated tubular metal structure that contains and sculpts the upholstery, becoming one with it in a huge, soft, seamless embrace. The upholstery, embellished with extremely sophisticated detailing, is completely handcrafted with extraordinary artisan skill, making it a one of a kind masterpiece. Sesann is available as an armchair and a sofa three and two-seat, in a broad array of colors and finishes, from leather to fabric. Internal frame: Cold foam with backrest insert and seat in polyurethane foam. Seat in 18 mm thick poplar plywood and solid fir wood with elastic belts. Base: Tubular metal frame Ø 20 mm powder-coated painted or chromed. Feet: Open pore stained solid ashwood. Upholstery: Not removable.

Customization Options
