Agnese

Cassina, Tacchini
1956 (2014)

Model 849, one of his most famous armchairs, was designed by Gianfranco Frattini in 1956. Awarded honorable mention at the 3rd Compasso d’Oro, Agnese is an Italian design icon whose appeal is timeless. His spirit of innovation is exemplary, even today. The upholstered seat and backrest are supported by an ash wood structure. The combination of the various materials, the contrast between the geometric lines of the base and the soft cushioned parts, the extraordinarily simple construction details in their uniqueness represent the signature style of a true master of design. Agnese blends timeless ergonomics and functionality with elegant, recognizable aesthetics. Perfect complement to the chair is the matching upholstered ottoman.
