conceived as an encounter between furniture design and electronic appliances, the ‘clique editions‘ blends italian craftsmanship with user friendly technology. presented during milan design week 2014, the collection combines analog and digital functionality to create objects for the smart home of the future, using high end materials such as marble, valchromat and solid wood. each piece by designers claudio larcher, filippo protasoni and simone simonelli have been developed to accommodate common devices such as smartphones and computers, with items from a portable kitchen, complete with tablet dock and induction burners, to an ergonomic seating system, with storage trays and wireless chargers.
