Stone Seating System
Stone, designed by PearsonLlyod for Tacchini, is a system of modular sofas with simple, easy shapes but rich in elements and enough assembling to fulfill the needs of the broadest range of public areas. Soft and comfortable, they draw upon the roundness of stones honed by flowing water and come in a wide range of upholstery. Stone sofas can either stand alone or set in cleft to enhance their elegance and are available in two heights: one is suitable for hotel contracting, waiting rooms, and public areas, while the other is more suited for catering areas, bars, and cafes.

A London based design firm, PearsonLloyd is a partnership that was created by Luke Pearson and Tom Lloyd in 1997. As an all-encompassing design studio, their work has spanned aviation, workplaces, urban design, healthcare facilities, and furniture design. With a thought-provoking goal to "identify and respond to the shifting patterns of behavior in contemporary life" PearsonLloyd pays particular attention to the human experience in all aspects of their work. In recognition of their work, PearsonLloyd was named Royal Designers for Industry by The Royal Society of Arts in 2008.
The agency’s work is driven by a need to understand and interpret a world that is experiencing rapid and often unexpected change. Its in-depth research into these changes – in both the material and digital world – enables PearsonLloyd to create design solutions that are appropriate and relevant for manufacturers, brands, and users. The studio is highly collaborative in its approach. It embraces the restrictions imposed by product type, function, material and process and delivers products that are beautiful, efficient and useful.
Luke and Tom were awarded the distinction of Royal Designers for Industry by The Royal Society of Arts in 2008 and in 2012 were named in the top 50 designers ‘Shaping the Future’ by Fast-Co Magazine in New York. They have lectured for a number of years at ECAL and the RCA and regularly talk at international platforms.
