Magazine March 2017


Yesterday and today.

We have been designing and producing on a daily basis for over a hundred years now, but once again we find ourselves on the threshold of the annual Milan Fair (4th to 9th April 2017) full of trepidation, enthusiasm and curiosity.

Since the 2016 Milan Fair we have continued to carry out research both within and outside our brand.
We took several steps in the last century to give meaning to the not to be taken for granted link between design and time.
We have challenged that invitation that pushes those who design to consider solely the new.
We, on the other hand, have sought out something from yesteryear that still today conveys wisdom, strength, purity of design.
Marcel is therefore the re-launch of Takahama's original 1974 design which we want to continue its journey through the history of design.

Marcel is evidence of the research that lies behind simplicity, behind a happily resolved form.
We are also ready to show you Puccio, Green and Blue.  These are all-new developments, born of our usual passionate and competent exploration of the subject of seating, newly embraced within the Billiani philosophy.


From 4th to 9th April come and sit for a Billiani chromotherapy session:
our design in wood and colour will captivate you for sure.
