Every now and then we all find ourselves in need of some not very important piece of furniture, perhaps without wanting to spend too much. This does not mean that we always have to turn to large-scale retail outlets. There are alternatives. Design Mood, for example, which looks out for and selects ideas of designers, mostly of the younger generation, and turns them into attractive products of excellent quality, offered at a moderate price. Among the pieces already on sale, the Opa chair designed by Filippo Mambretti, made of laminated birch plywood: to be assembled with metal fastenings, but without using glue. Joe Velluto’s Marshmallows container, made up of open boxes that can be rotated to hide their contents. Francesca Paglia’s Modulo B, a modular cube that can be used as a stool or a table, or stacked to form containers of various kinds. Design Mood is an initiative of Roversi Arredamenti and Studiolabo.
