Galleria by PearsonLloyd for Tacchini
Updated: Jan 23, 2020
PearsonLloyd’s Galleria comprises a steel bar, running along the base of the system, onto which a series of beautifully crafted elements in simple shapes and materials can be added; among them wood slabs, blocks of upholstered fabric and leather, and solid marble discs. The result is a logical, but abstract composition of textures and materials; not a surprise considering it was designed with images of Italian Neo-rationalist architect Aldo Rossi’s work in mind.
The system has a distinct architectural language, and enables the buyer to custom design the product for a particular space; be it a simple linear bench, an angular ten-seater for public spaces, or an upholstered island in a hotel, for guests to relax on.
While each element is hand crafted by specialists in northern Italy, the piece is designed to travel flat pack, and can be assembled on location.
