Studio mk27 - Marcio Kogan + Filippo Bricolo con Furrer, Buzzi&Buzzi
Loggiato Ovest - Università degli Studi di Milano
Probably there is no human space more intense than the one around the living microcosm of a table, an object that has always been a symbol of enjoyment and socializing, in both Italian and Brazilian culture.
With the Parla! table the Italian architect Filippo Bricolo and Marcio Kogan, founder of the Brazilian design studio mk27, do not present a simple piece of design furniture, but have formulated an imperative, a way of urging people to create a new convivium, offering visitors the possibility of a shared experience.
“A way to summon errant spirits (...) an appeal to those who still want to dream, but no longer find the space in which to do it.” This is how the designers explain their project. With a length of 10 meters, the table in fine Statuarietto marble, made thanks to the production prowess of the Furrer brand of Carrara, offers a visionary and real scenario: a symposium in which to find yourself through the fundamental and founding act of sharing. A space for reflection and dialogue that combines two of the loftiest manifestations of civilization: speech and food.
