Lina Armchair

by Tacchini


The Lina Armchair, designed by Gianfranco Frattini for Tacchini, is a new edition of one of his earliest projects. Nominated in 1955 for the prestigious Compasso d’Oro Award, Lina features an iconic and timeless wood frame with a solid yet lightweight appearance, combined with a comfortable upholstered seat. A very innovative workmanship technique was used at the time, repeated today with historical accuracy. The Lina Armchair is ideal both for private use and in commercial spaces, for example in living and and other lounging rooms, receptions and bedrooms.

The Lina Armchair is available in many different upholstery options, including COM and COL. Please make your selection of Upholstery Category in the option above. Once the relevant Upholstery Category is chosen, please indicate in the "Notes to Do Shop" upon check-out the reference of the upholstery chosen.
The ash frame is available in two finishes - dark walnut or grey. Please select your preferred finish in the Wooden Frame option above. Please

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.
