These days we have found an interesting furniture talking typography by Tabisso form Sant Nazaire, France. They actually answered back and told us a little bit about their chairs and background.
Here it is:
“A for?…“Apple!”, M for?… “Baboon!” (actually expecting “Monkey”… oh well) It was after an exciting experience teaching alphabet in a township off Johannesburg in South Africa that the concept of typographic furniture came to life. The very name of the company was inspired by one of the kids called Thabiso.
Focusing on high-end products, TABISSO develops innovative and original furnishing solutions, the modularity of which stirs the curiosity and creativity of users. Case in point, the Typographia collection offers very diverse solutions thanks to the underlying communication concept, which then immediately implies a message, a tone, a posture which all go beyond the objects. TABISSOinvites users to make collection concepts their own for unique applications.
All products are manufactured in France on the west coast, where the company is based. A real know-how in higher-end interiors in the region supports the assumed Made in France strategy – close relationships further guarantee quality and reactivity for all projects.
Environmental aspects are central in the development and manufacturing of the collections, taking into account the full life-cycle of the objects produced – the wood is certified, recyclable materials are always preferred, products are kept simple in order to help maintenance and to facilitate final disassembly and sorting.
TABISSO doesn’t forget its origin and supports education charity projects via its program called SpringofEducation©.
We love these chairs and of course the charity aspect of giving something back. If you like ot pimp up your room with some typogrpahy than get yourself some letters to sit on.
