Tre an­ni pas­sa­ti in Olan­da nel­lo stu­dio di Mar­cel Wan­ders, per il qua­le ha la­vo­ra­to co­me pro­duct de­si­gner e pro­ject lea­der, han­no da­to al non an­co­ra tren­ten­ne Si­mo­ne Bo­nan­ni la con­sa­pe­vo­lez­za di quan­to sia im­por­tan­te la di­men­sio­ne este­ti­ca ne­gli og­get­ti, co­sì da de­fi­ni­re co­me “at­ti­va­to­ri di sen­sa­zio­ni” i suoi pro­dot­ti. L’at­ten­zio­ne ver­so tut­ti gli aspet­ti del­la sen­so­ria­li­tà si tra­du­co­no co­sì in og­get­ti em­pa­ti­ci, co­me la fa­mi­glia di ta­vo­li­ni Obon Ta­bles per Moooi rea­liz­za­ti con ter­ra­cot­ta, at­tua­liz­zan­do un ma­te­ria­le an­ti­co con un design es­sen­zia­le e tat­ti­le. Al­tro­ve è la co­stru­zio­ne di una sto­ria a in­te­res­sar­lo: la cop­pia di anel­li da fi­dan­za­men­to Duet na­sce dal­la scis­sio­ne di un cor­po uni­co, in mo­do che i gio­iel­li, di­ver­si per di­men­sio­ne, ri­sul­ti­no com­ba­cian­ti nel­la su­per­fi­cie piat­ta ge­ne­ra­ta dal ta­glio. Al­tre vol­te il pro­get­to na­sce da un pro­ces­so più ra­zio­na­le e di stu­dio del­la ne­ces­si­tà di un’azien­da, co­me la pol­tron­ci­na im­bot­ti­ta Sie­na per MDF Ita­lia, pre­sen­ta­ta all’ul­ti­mo Sa­lo­ne, do­ve il se­di­le dal­le mor­bi­de pro­por­zio­ni è svin­co­la­to dal­la ba­se, de­cli­na­bi­le in ma­te­ria­li e ti­po­lo­gie d’uso di­ver­se per per­met­te­re in fu­tu­ro l’esten­sio­ne di fa­mi­glia.

He spent th­ree years in the Ne­ther­lands wor­king as pro­duct de­si­gner and pro­ject lea­der in the stu­dio of Mar­cel Wan­ders. This has gi­ven Si­mo­ne Bo­nan­ni, who is still in his twen­ties, an aware­ness of the im­por­tan­ce of the ae­sthe­tic di­men­sion of ob­jec­ts, to the point whe­re he de­fi­nes his pro­duc­ts as “ac­ti­va­tors of sen­sa­tions”. His at­ten­tion to all aspec­ts of sen­so­ria­li­ty trans­la­tes in­to em­pa­thic ob­jec­ts, su­ch as the set of th­ree Obon Ta­bles for Moooi ma­de wi­th ter­ra­cot­ta, up­da­ting this an­cient ma­te­rial wi­th an es­sen­tial, tac­ti­le design. El­sewhe­re, he is in­te­re­sted in con­struc­ting a story: the Duet pair of en­ga­ge­ment rings are fa­shio­ned from a sin­gle pie­ce, so that the two dif­fe­ren­tly­si­zed items fit per­fec­tly to­ge­ther at the point whe­re they we­re cut apart. Other de­si­gns start from the mo­re ra­tio­nal pro­cess of stu­dy­ing the needs of a com­pa­ny ca­ta­lo­gue. One exam­ple is the Sie­na pad­ded ea­sy chair for MDF Ita­lia, pre­sen­ted at the la­st Sa­lo­ne del Mo­bi­le, wi­th a sof­tly pro­por­tio­ned seat that is se­pa­ra­te from the ba­se, and avai­la­ble in ma­te­rials and dif­fe­rent ty­pes of use, to al­low the fa­mi­ly to be ex­ten­ded at a la­ter sta­ge.
