Pesce’s big, sensuous chair was inspired by the resilience of a sponge—the designer had become fascinated with “the way in which it always sprang back into its original shape.”

Indeed, the chair and sofa resemble nothing so much as a form-fitting marshmallow, albeit in a pleasing palette of pastel colors.
