Philippe Starck Sofa Lets People Plug In While Lounging
'My World' enables people to incorporate their mobile devices into their relaxing time through built-in, hidden power outlets and a Powermat.
Designer Philippe Starck has created the ‘My World’ sofa to enable people to incorporate use of their mobile devices into the time they spend relaxing. Created in partnership with the Italian furniture company Cassina, the sofa is equipped with privacy dividers, a side table with hidden power outlets, and a Powermat to charge gadgets discreetly.
Starck envisions ‘My World’ as a place where people can focus on themselves and use their devices while lounging at home. The sofa adapts to people’s habits in today’s technological world. Starck writes:
My World is a cocoon, a nest, a world where we can be egocentric and comfortably commune with our own shadow or collect some snatches of news from the world.
My World is available to buy as a whole piece or in sections to fit in with people’s individual needs. It comes in a variety of colors and two-seater or three-seater versions.
