Roma sofa range (2017)
The Roma sofa and armchair for Italian furniture maker Tacchini is the studio’s first collaboration in Italy. With a half-century long history and heritage in Italian craftsmanship and tailoring, it not a bad place to start.
Therefore, we were very excited to be asked to create a modern interpretation of a classic Italian mid-century furniture piece. The form of the Roma range is recognisable and timeless, but carefully shaped with comtemporary lines and proportions. The result is a graphic and simplistic design worthy of the Italian classics, and which certainly bears a strong trace of Jonas Wagell’s Scandinavian roots, as well.
The Roma sofa range is made by hand in the Tacchini factory in Brianza with superior quality and attention to detail. A sectional sofa and an armchair are the first models to be released at Salone del Mobile in Milan in April 2017.
