Always avant-garde, experimenting, surprising. This are the pillars supporting Teckell founder Gianfranco Barban’s innovative research. “We are not interested in being conventional. The object has to be altered in light of our intuition, not the opposite. Research and development should be continual; ideas for product improvements often come from diverse worlds and mind-sets. This is why I am always searching for collaborators who share my open-mindedness.”
Inspiration is always in the air, even in a billowing windsurfing sail on a gusty Sunday morning on Lake Maggiore. In fact, the scene sparked the creative genius of Teckell and designer Marc Sadler, whose work has been displayed in New York’s Museum of Modern Art. They’ve revolutionized the T1 pool table’s traditional cloth, drawing inspiration from windsurfing sails that remain taut due to rigid poles inserted in pocket-like slots on the sail.
