Husk Chair by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia
Italian designer Patricia Urquiola has designed the Husk Chair for B&B Italia. Here is some information by B&B Italia, “A molded plastic shell and a series of soft cushions; these are the basic elements of the Husk armchair. A celebration of softness, Husk is 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.
Three types of cushions are available; standard, large and very large or with a headrest, while the body support can be either fixed or rotating. A ottoman footrest is also available.
Playing on the wide range of colors and finishes of the body (in four-toned recycled plastic), the support (in natural oak or grey or black lacquered wood) and covers (numerous types of leather or fabric), Husk can radically change its appearance, from a single color 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, and components that can be fully disassembled in future – thus simplifying the recycling process and reducing the environmental impact.”
