Furniture like athletes: the new furniture relates to the world of sport

With an ironic gaze, design competes in a sports field, furniture comes out of the domestic space to inhabit open-air rooms, so sport becomes a moment of meeting and sharing. To tell the news of the production we have decontextualized them, transforming them into sports protagonists who compete in a tennis court or ready to jump obstacles in the athletics field. We thank Milanosport and its Saini Sports Center, which was founded in 1975 and is the largest sports center in the city, a unique place, surrounded by greenery and in which it is possible to practice a multitude of sports.
