Italian designer Simone Bonanni explains how he went from doodling in the margins of his notebooks to designing pieces for Moooi, in our latest Design Dreams video for the Dutch brand.
Bonanni, who heads Simone Bonanni Studio in Milan, has designed two pieces for Moooi – including the Hana armchair, which was launched in London yesterday.
Bonanni’s latest design for Moooi, the Hana armchair, is a cocoon-like piece with a curved backrest that envelops the sitter.
“I see it as the softest product in the Moooi catalogue,” Bonanni said in the video interview, which was recorded at his studio in Milan. “The wide backrest allows me to delimit a sort of place of comfort where you can spend rainy Sundays, read a book or just take a rest.”
Bonanni also designed a lower version of the armchair without the wide backrest, and an accompanying footstool.
