KELLY C By Tacchini
Upholstered fabric chair
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.
Kelly is a collection of chairs characterized by a friendly and jovial spirit which is expressed with organic shapes, pure and shiny colours and positive feelings. The personality of every model is distinguished by various shapes and sizes of seat and backrest, always suspended on thin metallic structures which remind vintage furniture and modern art’s works. Kelly chairs can stay independent or create different combinations and compositions, both in domestic and public environments. Kelly lounge armchair can be also combined with a coordinated footrest.
