“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. As many of us are using the spaces we call home in a way like never before, we ponder on the past, present and future of domestic environments. The Couch, conversations on design is presented by me David Plaisant for B&B Italia, and is available online from May 2020.
We go al fresco on this episode and talk to celebrated designer Philippe Starck about his new outdoor collection Oh, it rains! Plus we look at the history of taking the indoor out, and bringing the outside in with historian Penny Sparke and writer Catharine Rossi.
As many more of us have to work from home the question is more important than ever, we discuss ergonomics and comfort in design with Editor of AD PRO Katy Olson, design critic Annalisa Rosso and also hear from Piero Lissoni and Mario Bellini.
We jump on the piece of furniture that gives the podcast its name this week. From couch potato to couch surfer we look at how a large, soft object for the home has impacted our culture.
