Former MCA designer Michael Savona makes “work to live around” by trade, designing housewares, objects, printed matter, and much more. The MCA Store is currently featuring Savona’s Harmonyware line of neckpieces designed for Areaware, New York–based production company specializing in functional and unusual everyday objects by young, local designers. MCA Store buyer Mark Millmore knew that Savona’s playful conversation pieces would be a perfect, locally designed addition to the MCA Store.
Harmonyware necklaces (and bolo ties) are a nod to one of the earliest Areaware products, a wearable musical pendant created in the late 1980s. Savona’s Harmonyware chiming pendants are produced in the same workshop as the previous musical pendants in Taxco, Mexico, a mountainside town with a strong reputation for impressive silverwork. Inspired by this charming, chiming line of neckwear, we had to ask the soft-spoken designer what drives him to create work we don’t want to live without.
