Au79 Cafè

Billiani srl as Furniture

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.
