Designed by Claudio Larcher, Filippo Protasoni, and Simone Simonelli, CLIQUE is a line that merges furniture and technology. Specifically, furniture pieces are integrated with an "electric heart" that makes them appealing to the modern homeowner.

The collection of six furniture pieces uses a range of materials, including marble and wood, taking the shapes of tables, bookcases, heaters, seating systems and humidifiers. Although some of these home appliances are not always given the best treatment when it comes to design, CLIQUE blends form with function beautifully, creating forms that are contemporary, functional and play nicely with technology.

Pieces in the collection include Echo, a hybrid table and shelf that integrates a Bluetooth speaker, or Refill, seats that are designed with built-in wireless charging stations.
