Tao TA Lounge

12+ Weeks

The name of this chair reveals the core of the project. In fact, it is precisely on the T-shaped support of the backrest that attention has been focused. At the root of the concept, it is clearly the recovery of a classic style, typical of the 50's and 60's design. The two wooden shells joined by the metal frame are an image that each of us has in our memory, from everyday examples such as school chairs or Nordic bistro chairs to Eames' immortal masterpieces.

The two die-cast aluminium ends were the decisive choice, solving at the same time the backrest fixing system and resulting as the distinctive feature of the product. Tao is a strong and refined chair with a clean and friendly face but a sophisticated and pragmatic soul.
