There are projects that catch your eye immediately. They are creative, innovative and with soul. The first collection of kids’ furniture by Andrea Marcante and Adelaide Testa (Uda Architetti) ‘Cosa da Bocia’ is one of them.

They propose beds, wardrobes and writing desks in a distinctly modernist style, fusions of pastels shades and 100% eco-friendly materials. The pieces are made of recycled  wood, tubular metal, rope and cork.

Their approach is modern, functional and playful. Testa and Marcante design furniture that gradually adapts to different needs and places of the house, but also capable of entertaining children and stimulating their curiosity.


Beautiful modular shelves that can be combined together

Forms, colours and materials are a subtle invitation to imagine and play. The lamps could be spiders, the bed a castle or cabin. The functionality is also present: the kid’s desk can also be a coffee table, and the shelves can be re-arranged in the living room.

The playfulness and irony of their designs, their artistic touch, that are also present on their campaign, make this project unusual and interesting.

Marcante and Testa are presenting the collection at Fuorisalone (14-19th April) in Galleria Vanitas. If you are in Milan, you should really plan to visit them!

From September, ‘Cose da Bocia’ will be available online on their website and in a selected network of high-end multi-brand shops.
