Taco grew out of the wish to revolutionize the production system and all the materials used for an upholstered armchair by destructuring, dematerializing and lightening the product.
So compared with the traditional chair it does not have a wooden structure nor does it have polyurethane foam for the upholstery, but it fully maintains both comfort and appeal.
It all began with the development of the flat shell which was then suitably shaped and a thin Teflon core was inserted between two layers of natural felt. It takes on a three-dimensional quality as a result of the two milled grooves made in the hollow bars that make up the frame which by holding the two parts together defines the final shape.
In November 2022, Taco Chair won the “Archiproducts Design Awards” and “2022 Sustainability Award”
