Double die cast aluminium garden bed
Die Cast Aluminium
In developing RILLY, GamFratesi show how a subtle detail can be the seed of an expansive concept. “We were inspired by the beauty of the join between seat and back,” say the designers, referring to the fine line created by a hidden die-cast structure. The line reminded them of a “rill”, a channel cut by water into soil or rock. GamFratesi then used this die-cast structure as the basis of the RILLY system.
The RILLY double daybed and lounge chair are islands of subtle shading that can be placed anywhere to enjoy the surroundings in a comfortable and sheltered space. Friendly in its form, the daybed features a fixed canopy that invites users to cocoon themselves in shady comfort. The overall effect is one of lightness combined with solidity. Weave and powder-coated aluminum come together in what the designers describe as “an architectural union of materials, in a definite and honest way. ”
