DESIGN IS NOW BOARDING: THE HUSK CHAIR!

Posted on March 20, 2013 by admin

The Husk Chair is a beautiful and comfortable chair designed by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia.It’s a stunning piece of furniture that consists in a simple plastic shell and lots of soft cushions. The chair’s body support can be either fixed or rotating. It has soft cushions of different sizes and colors and a hard shell in Hirek. It actually is a  celebration of softness and the result of a long development process to create a versatile armchair that is both unique in its own right and able to complement even the most classic sofas. Playing on the wide range of colours and finishes of the shell, the swivel base-frame with four spokes and covers, Husk can radically change its appearance, from a single colour to an extremely bright or subtly elegant style. With this project, B&B Italia embraces the theme of ecology by using both recycled and recyclable materials. Luxury meets sustainability and the result is worth the detour, the price tag is approx. $2,700…
