“Inspiration does not follow regular routes. Only with hindsight does inspiration seem indeed logical. One thing is true, though: inspiration is a source of inspiration.” With these words - at the same time playful and profound - designers Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune sum up the coming into being of the Kelly project - a new chapter in their collaboration with Tacchini. Pure and bright colors, organic shapes, friendly and wholesome feelings enliven a wealth of sensible furnishing suggestions for domestic spaces and public areas, thanks to the unique blend of creativity harnessed by the Swedish designers and the sheer quality, team-working skills and attention to detail that have always distinguished this Italian company. Three seating furnishings are showcased: each with its own personality, playing on different-sized backrests and seats, suspended upon sleek metal frames, melding vintage settings and modern art inspirations. Their shapes, as well as color shades available are designed to stand alone or to conjure freely-inspired matches and compositions – whether in the home or in the world of contract supplies.
Drawing inspiration from the work of the American artist Ellsworth Kelly – a world of simple shapes and pure colours – Kelly is one of the best-loved projects from the design trio Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune. A collection that now expands to become even broader and more complete, with new proposals joining the armchair, lounge chair and high-backed chair, making for even more possibilities for different décors, arrangements and uses, in the widest range of different spaces and contexts. Kelly upholstered seat shares its “DNA” with Kelly armchair: soft and comfortable, smaller in size, the ideal complement for Kelly dining and meeting tables, available in a range of sizes, and featuring rounded edges and elegant legs that convey a sense of lightness. Kelly stool, with its upholstered seat, offers the ideal accessory seating, handy in numerous situations. The little Kelly occasional table was designed to accompany the armchairs from the same collection, but it can also be used in many different settings. Kelly pouf has a soft shape that is perfect for a well-deserved break, or a chat with colleagues or friends. Kelly footstool echoes the petal shape of Kelly lounge armchair, offering an even more relaxing position, but it can equally be used as a standalone seat.
