Comfort and eco-sustainability are the key words for describing the Husk Outdoor chairs. A collection that is a tribute to softness and an invitation to relax thanks to the generous extra soft cushions with a capitonné design. The hard shell is made of Hirek®, a special plastic material made up of recycled and recyclable polymers. The shell is in one colour, while the fixed seat support is available in different colours. The cushions come in two versions, with larger sizes on the seat or on the back.
Comfort and eco-sustainability are the key words for describing Husk and Husk Outdoor, designed by Patricia Urquiola. The collection is a tribute to softness, and just looking at these pieces is restful. The unprecedented design language includes generous extra soft cushions with a quilted design and a comfortable seat with a brightly coloured cover. Once again, classic themes emerge in contemporary versions. Eco-sustainability is current and vitally important: the shells of armchairs are in Hirek®, a special plastic formed from recycled and recyclable polymers.
