JWDA x Tacchini
The work for renowned Italian furniture maker Tacchini is one of the studio’s newest collaboration – and the first work in Italy.
As such, it has really come to a good start. In 2017 our first project – the Roma sofa range – was announced winner of Best Furniture in Archiproducts Design Awards 2017.
Our second collaboration – the Julep sofa range in 2018 – followed up with a Muuuz International Award 2018 and most recently, and for the second year, as winner of Best Furniture in Archiproducts Design Award 2018!
By the end of 2016 Jonas Wagell was approach by Tacchini with a request to create a modern interpretation of a classic Italian mid-century furniture piece for the family-run company. 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 collaboration continues with the Julep sofa collection introduced in as the protagonist of the brand at Salone del Mobile in Milan in April 2018. For this second project we have yet again drawn inspiration from mid-century furniture, but with a more daring Avant garde aesthetic.
All the furniture pieces are made by hand in the Tacchini factory in Brianza with superior quality and attention to detail.
