Joaquim Low Tables
The Joaquim low tables, created by Giorgio Bonaguro for Tacchini, were designed to salvage off-cuts, fully embracing the principles of upcycling and environmental sustainability. They take inspiration from the softness of Brazilian furniture design between the 40s and 60s in the modernist architecture of Niemeyer, Costa, Vilanova Artigas, and Bo Bardi.
The linear, geometric shapes are a homage to the straightforward, elegant lines of Joaquim Tenreiro, considered one of the fathers of modern tropical design. The tables feature a metal frame with tops and bases in Patagonia or Elegant Brown.
