Take by Billiani

Robust and beautiful, Emilio Nanni gives a fresh “Take” on function and process perfectly teamed with a beautiful form


September 1st, 2012

Billiani have been manufacturing timber chairs in Italy for over 100 years.

Emilio Nanni has been designing them for nearly 30.

With numbers like these you can safely deduce that a product like Take is born from best practice and proven experience.

Crafted entirely from plantation timbers, the green credentials of this stacking chair are indisputable.

Aesthetically, the Take is yours to imprint your style on. An array of stains and lacquers are offered in-house as well as the option of custom and unique orders to suit your particular project needs.

Coupled with the timber treatment options, Take can be specified with or without an integrated seat pad. Choice of upholstery in leather or textile, (or customer’s own material) extends the appeal.
