Concept

Tacchini continues its rediscovery of the previously unseen works of Franco Albini (1905-1977), a low-key yet perfectionist maestro of Italian XX century architecture and design, with its re-release of a 1939 coffee table designed to furnish Villa Monzino on Lake Como. Featuring a marble top with cleft edge on wooden legs, this work reveals an extraordinary expressive power, coming across as a key player also in a contemporary ambience. Equally unrivalled are the quality of materials and the quality of construction: two features that, along with the tireless exploration of the project’s cultural roots, have always been a hallmark of Tacchini’s product range.
