Tacchini has collaborated with Formafantasma to spearhead a new method of fabrication that reflects both time-honored utilitarian tradition and modern environmental concerns. Reworking upholstered seating from the inside, Formafantasma introduces a more sustainable, nature-based process for the manufacture of iconic Tacchini designs, with a technique inspired by antique mattress production, using surplus sheep’s wool to replace industrial foam. In combination with natural latex, the nonpolluting sheep’s wool provides softness and stuffing utilizing a natural material that has paradoxically been treated as a waste product.
Tacchini rediscovers this precious project and reissues it, respecting the original design by highlighting the vocation to comfort.
