Reversivel Armchair

by Tacchini


The Reversível Armchair, designed by Martin Eisler for Tacchini, is an historic piece of Carioca design. Reversível is entirely upholstered and held together by a slick metal frame. The Reversível offers two possible seating positions: upright back or semi-reclined, parallel with the backrest. This apparently simple reclining movement actually represented a ground-breaking intuition back in 1955. To celebrate the rebirth of the iconic Reversível armchair in Tacchini's new Classics edition, the brand has created a sophisticated version of Reversível Millennium Limited Edition with metal base in stylish blue and upholstered with blue Steila fabric. It is an exclusive Limited Edition of just 100 pieces as an homage to the great imagination and elegant creativity of Martin Eisler.
