or Call to Order

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.

Gianfranco Frattini

Italy (1926–2004)

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.
