Face to Face by Gordon Guillaumier for Tacchini
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
“Sit down next to me. I want to look at your face while we speak, to understand what you’re thinking.” Gordon Guillaumier reinterprets the sofa, transforming it into a space for one-on-one relations. Two backrests mirror each other, while soft feather cushions invite us to sit face-to-face and look each other in the eye, rediscovering the human dimension of our gaze, wherever we may be. With fabric or leather covering, Face to Face is designed to sit at the centre of the room, both in contract settings and in the intimacy of a domestic lounge room. The contrasting cross-stitched seams make it the perfect metaphor of any relationship between two people.
