Let’s talk about Tosca
The Tribù Tosca outdoor collection is simultaneously warm and inviting, stylish and intriguing
Monica Armani, for Tribù, succeeded fabulously in combining emotion, comfort and personality in one extraordinary collection.
Or wait, we have a better idea. Let’s talk in Tosca. Because apart from the unique design, the understated luxury and the technological innovation that this collection stands for, the Tosca sofas, chairs, loungers and daybeds are incredibly comfortable.
The perfect setting for a talk about design, or about opera for that matter. Because Tosca was named after the eponymous opera by Giacomo Puccini. A dramatic love story without a happy ending. Luckily, this Tosca is a true success story.
How to be intriguing, a bit mysterious even, and at the same time display a warm and welcoming feeling? For us, it was clear from the very beginning that we needed female designer Monica Armani to complete such a task. And she succeeded fabulously in combining emotion, comfort and personality in one extraordinary collection.
The rounded bucket seats embraced by wide, vertical braids immediately became a signature look for the Tosca collection, together with the tapered legs and the muted tone-on-tone colours of the frame and the weave. Luxury in its most refined form.
Tactile and technical
Armani teamed up with her husband Lucca Dallabetta, who is a technical engineer, to develop a unique and very tactile fabric fitted for the Tosca range. The know-how of both the couple and Tribù resulted in the XL weave by covering foam with a seamless, tubular stocking knitted from textilene and polyolefin. Ready to resist water, staining, fungi and UV radiation.
The result is a natural and very elegant look, which enhances the feeling of understated luxury that Tosca breathes. To complete the range, Armani designed a refined oval dining table and matching coffee tables, available in five different colours of ceramics resting on elegant tapered legs similar to those of the dining chairs.
Relaxing at Villa Geba
Tosca’s lounger, daybed, chair and sofas have the distinctive ability to keep their beautiful looks thanks to their weather resistance. That easy maintenance of the furniture makes this collection extremely suitable for the hospitality market.
In the five-star boutique hotel Villa Geba in Montenegro, for example, the architects of RAVN Studio selected Tosca for its contemporary design and its luxurious elegance but also for its comfort. Both the comfort of enjoying a breath-taking view in the best possible seats and the comfort of not having to worry about constantly changing furniture from outdoor to indoor. A mind at ease.
