This project includes two of our products which, for differing reasons, particularly involve us, and we are delighted that MIM Design should have selected specifically Fratina and Gradisca to co-exist in such a lavish refurb.
Fratina is a chair that Luigi Billiani really was determined to develop. In 2015 he commissioned Emilio Nanni to design for him a chair with decided sobriety and with strong natural flavour. Fratina got off to a flying start, instantly winning the Red Dot Award 2016.
Alongside Fratina, in a spacious and contemporary area covered by a large botanical garden, Gradisca barstools are dotted around. Gradisca was one of the final designs for us by Maestro Werther Toffoloni, a local Friuli designer, with whom we we worked over many years and who we remember with much affection and esteem.
