Tattoo Cactus Stool
for Baleri Italia
The Tattoo Cactus stool was designed by Maurizio Galante and is one of our favorites. It works as a round additional seat, stool, pouf or footrest and we can attest to the comfortability of this piece. The photographic print on the cover makes this stool realistic and three dimensional. We love that this stool adds texture to any room and sense of playfulness with its prickly parts. The Tattoo Cactus stool is environmentally friendly with a composition in CFC-free flexible polyurethane foam with an internal anatomical rigid structure – its discreet underside base is plastic. Each bi-elastic textile cover is composed of 80% polyamide and 20% elastane – a spandex fiber that is typically used in the apparel industry.
Maurizio Galante + Tal Lancman
In 2003, Maurizio Galante joined Tal Lancman, an analyst and trend designer, to form Interware. Their vision ranges from different disciplines, from fashion to furnishings, from interior to architecture and gardening. With this freedom between various fields, the duo manages to revisit classic themes with new approaches, intuitions, and observations.
In 2008, haute-couture fashion designer, Maurizio Galante, began to develop a series of incredibly realistic printed textiles that became extraordinarily engaging once stretched and used as upholstery. In 2011, Galante along with his partner Tal Lancman introduced a series of visually-intricate covers for Tatino series that feature three versions of marble and two versions of precious stone.
