We called it “sofa4manhattan”, to emphasize the fact that it’s going to be the first sofa ever “crowd-crafted” in New York City. Let’s see what the project is about, in detail.

IDEO designer Dario Buzzini, together with Design-Apart and Berto have organized an amazing new experience for newyorkers.

The project is scheduled to start on saturday, January 18th…

First of all, the workshop with 12 designers, all based in New York (with the only exception of our Italian special guest, designer Luca Nichetto) some of which from prestigious design studios like IDEO, others from the upcoming creative scene of Brooklyn.

All of them will approach the first step of the project sofa4manhattan, providing their own special vision of:

How the ideal sofa for Manhattan should be

There are still 2 places left, so, if you want to be part of this incredible experience write to us now.

After the first step, one project will be selected to be produced.

Production will take place in March, in the premises of Design-Apart loft in NYC, together with our producer Berto, whose Master Artisans from Italy will physically hand-produce the sofa4manhattan, together with designers and whoever will be interested in participating to the artisan work sessions.

Stay tuned for more, and get ready to see the first hand-made, crowd-crafted sofa for Manhattan!
