Chill-Out by Tacchini Italia
“A while ago I was reading ‘Lezioni Americane’ (Six Memos for the Next Millennium) the book written by Italo Calvino based on a series of lectures he held at Harvard. He talked about lightness in opposition to the weight, he explained he privileged lightness, he was removing weight from people, from cities....Calvino adds, “I look to science to nourish my visions in which all heaviness disappears”, I have been thinking for years to this concept and finally conceived Chill-Out System”. With these words Gordon Guillaumier introduces his new project. Chill-Out is a modular system of sofas, armchairs, ottomans or small tables which express a long searched simplicity, a precision that is harmony and wellness, a modularity becomes total freedom of composition and setting of spaces. Chill-out system has been designed for both habitat and public spaces. It can be a single element or a modular composition with various shapes and dimensions. The thin and elegant proportions express lightness with its light, metallic base supporting the simple, clean and comfortable volumes. Sofas, armchairs and benches can be integrated with small square and rectangular tables realized in white Carrara or Basaltina marble always in mat finish. The metal frame is available in satin chrome or epoxy coated versions. Going back to “Lezioni Americane” Calvino writes “Lightness for me goes with precision and determination, not vagueness and the haphazard”. This sentence well describes our philosophy, Chill-Out as all our models of our collection is obtained from the value of materials used, the high skills of our workmanship and the freshness of our realization that cross the time.
