A project enhanced by a new dimension thanks to the high backrest version, embellished by a grill of stitches which contributes to create a more intimate seat and to organize space like a dividing screen. Chill-Out High has been designed to easily allow combinations with low backrest Chill-Out elements increasing the possibilities of composing and personalizing the space.
