Things to Covet for May

Here are the pieces, objects and furniture pieces that we love for their craftsmanship

Chatty Sofa

The Chatty sofa from the MCM Wearable Casa Collection unveiled during the 2024 Milan Design Week, has captured our attention. Designed by Atelier Biagetti and curated by Maria Cristina Didero, this sofa channels a street graffiti aesthetic, drawing inspiration from vibrant urban art. Beyond its artistic appeal, the Chatty sofa pays homage to iconic pieces like Gufram’s Bocca Sofa by Studio 65 from the 1970s, blending nostalgia with contemporary sensibilities. This sofa offers a space for relaxation, while also incorporating charging capabilities to keep users connected.

Z Desk

The Z Desk by Marcin Waszak Design caught our eye thanks to its practical yet playful approach to work. Marcin Waszak, a UK-based furniture designer, collaborated with William Hands to create a unique desk inspired by Wassily Kandinsky’s ‘Dance Curves’ drawing series from 1926. Drawing from Kandinsky’s abstract linear designs depicting human dancing poses and movement, Waszak translated these elements into the frame of the desk. The desk features a removable central panel that can serve as an angled drawing board or a surface for use over one’s lap while seated on a sofa or bed. It also offers extra space through a sliding panel hidden on the right side of the tabletop and three movable drawers. We love it because the piece explores the concepts of movement and space, prioritising adaptability for the user.
