Billiani prepares for the Salone del Mobile 2016, a historic company from Friuli specialized in the production of chairs and seats for the contract sector, Billiani will be present at the Salone del Mobile with many new features:
la iconic Fratina chair by Emilio Nanni and l 'hanger Tango Timo Ripatti that perfectly completes the setting for restaurants, lobbies and other public places. In addition, Billiani will present a new variant of the Spy armchair designed by Emilio Nanni and a range extension of Egidio Panzera's Grapevine tables.
The 2016 novelties enter, with the "Freschezza" file, to be part of the "Membership" catalog by Billiani, edited by Lara Vidotto with images by Beppe Brancato. More than a catalog, the volume aims to be the story of Billiani's values starting from the story of the laboratory and the chapter "Anatomy of a chair". An in-depth study that explores the themes of craftsmanship and design, tradition and contemporary design. And that naturally offers the wide range of Billiani chairs and tables offered in a very wide range of colors.
FRATINA - Design: Emilio Nanni
Chair and armchair in ash wood, stained or lacquered, seat with fabric covering, braided cord, leather or straps.
Fratina, designed by Emilio Nanni, is a metaphor for the quadrature of the circle. The structure is defined by a tracing of sharp lines that recall the square, the backrest is built by curving the wood in a circle, in a reduced form in the chair version and in a generous way in the armchair version.
Chair and small armchair of the Fratina model stand as a typological rereading of the minimalist sitting, revisited in a contemporary key, enhancing the Vitruvian balance in the relationship between two pure geometric figures. Made of ash wood, stained or lacquered, both Fratina variants are available padded and upholstered in fabric, woven in cord, leather or straps.

TANGO - Design: Timo Ripatti
Hanger in stained or lacquered ash essence.
The Tango clothes hanger designed by Timo Ripatti goes to the origin of the wood material, transporting in a pure and iconic object all the strength and naturalness of this living and warm material, through the best tradition of Scandinavian design. The particular twist of the central joint recalls that fluid dialogue of the bodies that in the tango so much marvels.
