Tasca Lounge Chair and Ottoman | © By Simone Viola
If you close your eyes and think of a lounge chair, in all likelihood you will imagine overly lavish interiors.
Tasca is a collection with a refined but deliberately non-exclusive design: it stands out as a countertrend item, eliminating stereotypes and allowing everyone to have access to beauty.
Conceived with a double function, for both private and public spaces, Tasca collection consists of a lounge and a footrest, characterized by a modern design and an irresistible and timeless elegance.
These sober and comfortable items make every room welcoming and create the perfect location to enjoy a moment of peace in which time flies imperceptibly.
The lounge and the footrest form a unique collection thanks to the skillful use of a single modular cushion in which lies the heart of the project, composed of elements in recycled materials.
With its distinctive black metal base and fabric or eco leather upholstery, Tasca collection offers a range of options that makes it perfect for all tastes.
- Seat and seat back are commercial grade HR foam moulded into the shape.
- The seat shell inside the chair is recycled plastic from natural waste.
- Powder-coated metal base.

Simone Viola was born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1985.
After rigorous training in industrial design in Milan and through his collaboration during various architectural and design studies, he began to gain experience in Switzerland and abroad. In 2011, he founded the Simone Viola Design Studio, focusing on industrial projects for furniture and accessories. His philosophy leans toward research on the materials and technical aspects related to the development of the project, conceptually guided by historical and artistic references. This approach produces the most natural connection to contemporary design, where the object is not the expression of a trend, but a long-lasting fusion of form and the intended use. Soft, natural elegant shapes and elevated attention to details characterizes his work and continuous optimization of the development phase allows the realization of high quality and generously accommodating products.
TOOU is the realization of a utopia: ergonomic, accessible and versatile designs applied to everyday objects. Conceived for both interior and exterior furnishing, for singles and communities alike, with a cross-fit aesthetic that adjusts to every living style, Toou objects are designed and built for each one of us. A meeting point between the European and Asian culture, in 2015 TOOU started creating design objects taking account of people above all. TOOU was born out of the blend between European taste for design, in its Italian, Swiss and Northern European interpretations. Italy is the creative heart of TOOU, where designs take shape and where the upholsteries are tailored following accurate research on materials and colour combinations. Our moulds are then developed and mass-produced making the best use of consolidated experience in the manufacturing of plastic products for renowned furniture industry partners. The production of TOOU moulds is entrusted to a company with over 30 years of experience in the sector. The quality of moulds and finishes is the same applied to the production of components for the automotive industry, which requires very high-quality standards. Our primary goal is to make each object as desirable, affordable and customizable as possible, making use of a wide range of materials, shapes and colours, in order to turn a mass-produced product into a highly personal one. Our products are the material realization of strong, detailed ideas. Toou aims to create long-lasting in objects, both in construction and in aesthetics silhouettes and volumes that will become the trustworthy companions of your own domestic landscape.
