Philippe Starck is known for designs that are as functional as they are beautiful. So it’s not surprising that when it came to designing a sofa, the results would include everything from privacy dividers, to accessible power outlets, to even a Powermat wireless induction charging pad.
There’s probably a good reason it’s called the My World, because as long as your gear is charged, what else do you really need?Cassina in the coming months — after it’s been officially unveiled at the Salone del Mobile furniture show this week — the sofa will be sold as modular sections that can be assembled to suit any sized room or purpose. The charging features are also discreetly hidden in a side table drawer so you can keep wires mostly out of sight, particularly if you have devices that can take advantage of the wireless charging pad. Pricing is still to be announced, but Starck’s creations have thankfully never been astronomically expensive.
