Today we take for granted the use of computers for the creation of three-dimensionally represented forms. Think about those years, though: Man still had to conquer the moon, and the era of computers was at its very beginnings, as they still were rudimentary instruments that took up entire rooms and worked with punched cards. Microprocessors had not been invented yet, and personal computers were still cutting-edge experiments in an almost secret department at Olivetti. In other words, it was technological prehistory.

But Professor Regge’s intellect was working fifty years ahead of everybody else. And so a recliner was born, that broke free from the models of the category and denied any formal definition; a recliner floor seat, which was part ottoman and part chaise longue, and that gave life to a precursory image of a way of seeing living, as well as an interior design project that would become a mass phenomenon only a few decades later.

Detecma is a project that comes back in 2014 with a connotation of disarming modernity: the parametric “open source” mathematical formula is taken from the Dupin Cyclide, and its gradient colours cover the entire chromatic spectrum in an explosive celebration of full tones and perfectly blended nuances. Six versions that, put together, return all the tones in the world.
