Chill Out Sofa
Inspired by freedom, simplicity, and lightness, the Chill Out Sofa designed by Gordon Guillaumier for Tacchini was created as a piece in an interchangeable series of sofas, armchairs, poufs and coffee tables. The Chill Out sofa, winner of the 2016 Archiproducts Design Award, is made up of modules that can be combined in many compositions for various room and seating needs. The design of the sofa features a slim profile that does not forego comfort and can be attached to an additional sofa or a marble-topped coffee table for a linear style in a modern space. The sofa is available in a variety of upholstery fabrics and the leg base is available in chrome or painted steel (white or grey). The Chill Out sofa comes as a left arm, right arm, armless or dual armed sofa.
