Some photos from “COSE DA BOCIA”, the new kids furniture collection designed by Andrea Marcante and Adelaide Testa, which made its debut at Fuorisalone during Milan Design Week 2015.
COSA DA BOCIA derives from a new way of envisaging space in relation to its inhabitants, proposing furniture that gradually adapts to different needs and places, capable of entertaining children while at the same time bringing out the most ironic side of adults. A collection of furniture designed for the modern-day family for whom finding an interior space and home environment suitable for communal life are fundamental values and ingredients for living a well-balanced life.
“The home, including the children’s room, is envisaged as a combination of spaces capable of keeping both the important and more evanescent sides of our personality alive” so Marcante and Testa point out. “Bocia” means ‘kid’ in Turin jargon. The collection is designed to meet the needs of the new modern-day family that is now quite accustomed to inhabiting spaces fluidly, with no separation between the space for adults and children’s space. We have retraced the history of furniture and children spaces from 1920 to 1970, in order to come up with a small but entirely customisable collection made of recycled wood, tubular metal, rope and cork, matched with accessories specially designed for us by Gruppo di Installazione.”
