Pigreco Dining Chair by Tacchini
The essential nature of a sign. The proportion of solids and voids. The harmony between straight and curved lines. Every feature of this chair responds to a logic: conveying a "sense of space" to a traditionally static object. The triangle acts as a dynamic element and is reinforced by the two rear legs, which come closer together to give the seat stability without compromising the feeling of lightness that pervades the object. Tobia Scarpa's graduation project at the University of Venice in 1959, this is the first product ever designed by the Italian architect. Tacchini's exclusive re-edition of Pigreco in Canaletto walnut, walnut-stained ash and charcoal grey ash, with leather or fabric seat covering, bears the mark of the great architect.
