Tacchini celebrates Brazilian design essence

Iconic furniture designed in the 1950s by Martin Eisler is paired with contemporary projects in the Brazil collection by Tacchini.

Modernity and traditional craftsmanship coexist in Brazilian design, which since the mid-century has been able to integrate form and function, emotional intensity and elegant minimalism, lightness and solidity. Tacchini Italia creates a bridge between the Brazilian spirit and the Italian savoir-faire, between past and present, presenting the re-edition of some furniture designed by Martin Eisler in the fifties, including the armchair Costela, winner of the prestigious Compasso d'Oro.

Of Austrian origin, Eisler moved to South America in the 1930s, becoming the creative director of Forma in 1955, one of the brands that has innovated and made Brazilian design known throughout the world. With the Italian Carlo Hauner, the designer experiments with the processing of exotic woods and the techniques of painting and lacquering wood, glass and bronze.

Respect for history and a look towards the future characterises the approach of contemporary talents such as Zanini de Zanine, Giorgio Bonaguro and Domingos Tótora, who work alongside Eisler in the new Tacchini Brazil collection.
