is a veteran of the Milan-based group Codice 31, which he founded along with five other designers in 1998. (Fun fact: That same year saw the first iteration of Milan's much vaunted Salone Satellite
.) Krusin is now design director at Piero Lissoni
, meaning he's partially responsible for all the low-slung Italian sofas and sleek sliding glass doors we so often admire—clients include Alessi, Kartell, Flos, Thonet, and Wella. He completes solo projects under the moniker Klay, which has specialized in "objects of natural materials influenced by world cultures" since 2004. We caught up with Marc before this year's Salone del Mobile in Milan, where he will be unveiling a storage system for Spanish company Punt Mobles
, among others.
