Le Mura Sofa by Tacchini
The project Le Mura by Mario Bellini represents the manifesto of a radical design that went through all the Italian 70s: design was as an answer to questions not only of aesthetics, proportions or ergonomics, but also of social content. The result is a project of inexhaustible strength, that does not wear out after fifty years. The theme of modularity is central, and is already expressed by the name chosen for this sofa system: just as the large boulders that made up the imposing Roman walls, the seating elements come together in the design in a theoretically infinite process. This way, the sofa lends itself to small but also very large environments, without ever losing its stylistic aspect. Tacchini rediscovers this precious project and reissues it, respecting the original design by highlighting the vocation to comfort.
After the launch in 2022 of Mario Bellini's iconic design, reissued with the brand, Le Mura is back in the spotlight at Milan Design Week 2023. The collaboration between Tacchini, Formafantasma and Rubelli, a company renowned for its fabric manufacturing expertise, confirms the timeless character of the sofa, with a contemporary twist. The two designers explore the concept of modularity of the sofa by selecting 9 colours in 3 shades of the Ombra fabric, a pure cotton velvet. A distinctive palette that perfectly enhances the design of the product, conceived to colour the entire composition in a single tone or build a stylistic dialogue between the modules dressed in the different colours. The proposal celebrates Le Mura modular sofa and confirms the care for upholstery that Tacchini has been pursuing for long time.
