Sesann Armchair

by Tacchini


The Sesann Armchair, designed by Gianfranco Frattini for Tacchini, is a re-issue of one of his iconic designs from the late 1950s. The fully upholstered structure is embraced by a tubular metal frame which acts as an architectural structure accentuating the generous cushioning, creating a bold and elegant look. With multiple options of leather or fabric upholstery, Sesann creates striking combinations of colours and textures between the cushions, the metal frame and its ash wood feet. The Sesann 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.
