The Sesann sofa is one in a series initially created by Gianfranco Frattini for Tacchini in 1970. His design for this sofa examines furniture structure and creates a piece that embraces a consolidated form. It uses structural tubular steel as a framework that assumes the shape of the sofa. By playing with volume and softness through upholstery and steel tubing, Frattini has developed a visually and conceptually elegant design. The Sesann sofa is available in either a two-seat or a three-seat sofa. Choose from a wide range of finishes and colors for the tubular steel and various upholstery choices.

An Italian designer, Gianfranco Frattini was best known for his work as both an architect and an industrial designer. Born in Padua in 1926, he studied under Gio Ponti before opening his own architecture practice. Frattini found his way into industrial design when he came across a gap in design for lighting and furniture for his interior spaces. Thus began a wide array of collaboration with many furniture design houses, including Cassina, Bernini, Arteluce, Fantoni, Artemide, and Knoll. In 1956, he became one of the founding members of the Association of Industrial Design. Notable furniture pieces include the Boalum Lamp in 1969 and 780/783 a set of low beechwood and black lacquer tables.
