The Dressed Sofa designed by Luca Nichetto for Tacchini is available as a two- or three-seat sofa with a distinctive sportswear-inspired look: the padding is sewn directly into the covers as if it were the protection of a technical garment. The Dressed is a fresh, contemporary solution for a sofa with clean, rigorous lines, equally suitable for the home or for offices and waiting rooms.
Design Being Vol. A
An Italian industrial designer, Luca Nichetto is known for his collaboration with various other designers and design companies. He opened his own studio, Nichetto Partners, in 2006, specializing in industrial design and consulting. Previously, he worked with Murano-based glass maker Salviati as well as lighting company Foscarini. Nichetto opened a second studio in Stockholm, Sweden. His industrial design work includes the Motek Chair for Cassina. With inspiration from Japanese origami, the chair evokes the folds of paper while still maintaining the rigidity and strength needed in a well-designed chair. With many choices in regards to finish and material available, the design adheres to Nichetto's manifesto for 20 Design Principles.
