Tapa pouffes were used as element of set design for the famous movie Loro, inspired by the career of the former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. The furniture “starred” in one of the main scenes.
Loro, the latest picture by the Oscar winning Italian Director Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty, Youth and more) tells the story of the former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, a controversial billionaire and the central figure of many high-profile political, financial and sex scandals. The production had its Italian premiere in the spring of 2018. Originally, the film had two parts. Now it is shown in cinemas around the world in an abridged version.
A set of Tapa pouffes made by Nowy Styl Group was used in a scene set in the garden of Berlusconi’s villa in Sardinia. Tapa was designed by Mac Stopa of Massive Design studio.
The designer’s idea was to create pouffes that would resemble an architectural sculpture rather than a typical piece of office furniture. Tapa’s original appearance and functionality have already won wide recognition among many design professionals. The pouffes have won a number of prestigious design awards, including the Best Of Year Awards from the international magazine Interior Design.
