Agnese Armchair

by Tacchini


The Agnese Armchair, designed by Gianfranco Frattini for Tacchini, is part of a collection inspired by a re-issue of one of his historical designs of the late '50s, nominated for the prestigious Compasso D'Oro Award in 1956. Agnese is painstakingly true to its original design, down to every details such as the hand-sewn stitching on the armrests. Agnese features a light frame in ash wood, which elegantly supports the backrest and the seat with its armrests and cushion. A matching ottoman is also available, again produced to Frattini’s original design.
The Agnese Armchair is ideal both for private use and in commercial spaces, for example in living and and other lounging rooms, receptions and bedrooms.

Italian designer Gianfranco Frattini was one of the founders in the late 50’s of the ADI, Association for Industrial Design. Frattini opened his own design studio in Milan, after having worked for years with his teacher and mentor Gio Ponti. After only a few years Gianfranco became a world-known industrial designer: among his many successful projects, in 1956 he designed the chair Model 849, nominated for the “Compasso d’Oro” Prize.
