We will once again take a walk through the most beautiful shows of the Fuorisalone.
Decontextualize: this is Piero Gilardi’s mantra. Recreate the bucolic atmosphere of a mountain river or the ocean cliffs inside the domestic space - this was his aim: to empty the weight of an object, but let its image - rather its artificial reproduction
- keep the poetry and the evocative simplicity from which these objects come alive for the user. And the so the series Sassi is born: Sedilsasso, the biggest rock - to be used as a chair - comes with two more pebbles, which go together to recreate for al
l purposes a natural contemplative set.
Sassi, artificially natural, are an oxymoron, a vision of design that demolishes and subverts the proved parameters of tactile and visual perception. Same skin, same volume, same tones, same roughness, same oute
r layer of natural stones, but different substance and weight, that turn them into innocuous boulders; freed from gravity and light, they rise to a new life. In the scenic design of the living space they become a soft seating system - an innocent deceit a
ble to create a short-circuit between usage and end use, between reality and fiction. The meaning itself of the product is multiplied and strengthened exponentially by addition and accumulation.
