Let’s celebrate the beauty of unusual places and extreme landscapes, with that strange uniqueness that overwhelms us as our own.
Like flamingos in the middle of a technical stop, we have arrived with our Grill collection to this cactus oasis in the Quebrada de la Chimba National Reserve, Chile. Just being there, with your feet touching the sand, the pleasant spring temperature gets into your body. We quickly realize that a bit of la vie en rose goes well with this landscape. Because when we design outdoor spaces, we often tend to choose neutral and earth tones that blend harmoniously into the environment. However, injecting them with a daring colour, totally exotic and alien to the territory, can be a very original and stylish option.
“The design is very clean, very simple. It is very modern, but it allows you to fit in, let's say, a more rustic environment and at the same time, in a much more contemporary one. In a classic setting, you can add a casual touch without being shrill. And in the same way, the fact that it can be outside or inside also makes it very versatile. It gives a lot of game.”
