My World is a cocoon where we can be egocentric and comfortably commune with our own shadow: Philippe Starck.

MyWorld: Philippe Starck for Cassina.

The social value of a piece of furniture, as famous designer Philippe Starck has always maintained, is fundamental: the new MyWorld sofa develops this concept allowing the user total freedom for social, intimate and professional use, in particular for those who have more flexibility between the home and work place. MyWorld is a lounge system that invites its user to be comfortable and stay in contact at the same time.

The sofa system designed by Philippe Starck for Cassina has an incorporated electrical re-charging station, a USB charger and a Duracell Powermat wireless charging solution all discreetly concealed inside the box-cupboard.

“We live in a schizophrenic society. Let’s assume that. 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, that is said to be real,” explained Philippe Starck.

This authentic sofa system is an experience around which one’s life takes place: relax, converse, eat and drink, invite and accommodate, love, work and connect. MyWorld is synonymous of independence: it is made up of a variety of pieces that can be grouped together and integrated with accessories. Tables, both side surfaces and freestanding, and box-cupboards are available in oak, rosewood or varnished in a selection of different colours. Screens in oak, rosewood, leather or wicker are available in two heights and define the area around the sofa.

MyWorld is available in a two-seater sofa, a three-seater sofa, an armchair, a chaise-longue and pouf with two large incorporated drawers. The cushions are padded with feathers for extreme softness and comfort. Extra cushions can be combined to maximise relaxation. Stitching is elegantly visible around the borders of the sofa and upholstery is available in both leather and fabric from the Cassina collection, as well as in a special edition in 100% natural leather.
