Contemporary Multifunctional Billiard or Game Table, Cocktail Table and Paravent

About

The pool table light tropics is a collaboration between Hillsideout and Hermelin Billiards Milan – leader in the industry since 1825 – and was built around the concepts of elegance, light, contemporary and handmade design. After the first American Pool tables Mexico and Chaac, Hillsideout introduces this light version for home-use. Light Tropics is smaller in size and 7 times lighter than an American Pool table. The heavy slate usually used for the top has been substituted with bakelite. Its weight is about 100 kg. Besides being a Billiard Table, it is also a Cocktail Table due to the paravent which works as well separately. Hence, the Billiard table comes with a paravent-cover which can be used horizontally and then the Billiard Table becomes a Cocktail table. And it can be used vertically just as a standing paravent which five parts can be moved easily. The woods used is a mix of Italian and certified colorful Amazonian wood. It is a very pictorial piece due to the beauty of the hand designed colorful inserts made of wood and Murano glass. Even the four table legs were inspired by painting. The paravent-cover LIGHT TROPICS represents a mask which is inspired by a group of indigenous people called the Caduvei (or Kadiwéu) still living in few villages in the Brazilian jungle. In the late 19th century the Italian painter and very authentic traveller Guido Boggiani was the first who portrayed the Caduvei women with their outstanding body and face paintings made of urucù pasta. These images, both drawings and photography, prove beautiful decorations which disappeared in their complexity. We stylized a face painting by using colorful elements like burnt Murano glass and naturally coloured woods from Brazil to emphasise the approach of wild life as Boggiani highlights the importance of their living in complete harmony with nature. This piece shows the historical complexity of two continents by applying and respecting very different traditional handcraft. Used materials for Billiard Table: Handcrafted woods, bakelite, Plexiglass, plastic, blu cloth Used materials for Paravent: Handcrafted woods, burnt and colored Murano glass, screws of brass Accessories: cue stand in form of a tea-table made of handcrafted woods, an old cue coming from the factory Hermelin with pool triangle for balls; + 4 American Pool cues, set of American Pool balls, chalk 12 piece box, pool table brush Dimensions: cm L 230 x D 140 x H 80 (Billiard-Table) about cm L 250 x D 4 x H 160 (Paravent) - movable - cm L 250 x D 160 x H 83 (Cocktail-Table) cm L 70 x D 61 x H 97 (tea-table cue stand) Unique editions of 7 + 1 a.p.

About The Maker

HILLSIDEOUT

View Profile
HILLSIDEOUT is an Italian-German collaboration which combines antique restoration techniques with contemporary mediums. Founded in 2009 by Andrea Zambelli and Nat Wilms, the brand name is a linguistic game related to their vision of furnishings that finds inspiration in an external element from the land by bringing it "out" into interiors. The idea of "restoration" but also of artistic concept is consistently present and works in harmony with the strong belief in the contemporary. "We love to see historical layers. This is why we show them through transparent materials and time related mediums such as photography." Andrea and Nat enjoyed an Italian education. Andrea (b. 1978 in Italy) is a professional restorer of furniture with more than 15 years working experience in Bologna dealing with wealthy family heritages dating from the early 17th to the mid 20th centuries. As a designer he believes in a possible re-interpretation of his former profession believing that ancient skills of application, which are slowly disappearing, should be preserved. The insertion of innovative materials using antique manufacturing skills is based on the historical furniture tradition but also renews it at the same time. Nat (b. 1976 in Germany) is a freelance artist with a degree in Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna/Italy. She graduated in cultural-visual Anthropology in 2006 and works since then as a designer, a conceptualist as well as a teacher of multimedia classes.
