B&B Italia | The Couch – Conversations on Design
“The Couch, Conversations on Design” is a brand new podcast brought to you by B&B Italia. Over the course our first 7 episodes we’ll be sitting down, sitting back and listening in on designers, writers, collectors and curators to discuss the importance of the home and all the things we decide to put in it.
Ep.1 – What makes a home?
As we are using our homes like never before, we discover just how crucial the domestic space is to our culture. We trace the origins of modern home design and see how it can be both a refuge and platform of creativity.
Guests: Michael Anastassiades, designer, Tom Morris, writer and interiors expert, and Professor Penny Sparke, design academic.
Ep. 2 – Know your couch
From radical, experimental design to brash, sensational advertising there are some couches that tell a story. We go on design voyage sitting on some masterful couches along the way, including Gaetano Pesce’s UP, Antonio Citterio’s Sity, Mario Bellini’s Le Bambole.
Guests: Antonio Citterio, Architect, Piero Lissoni, Architect, Nina Yashar, gallerist and entrepreneur, and Catharine Rossi, author.
