14/12/2015 - Missana launches Balea and Hug, their latest products designed by two emerging talents, Muka and Cristian Reyes, for their prestigious collection The Novelties.
The first product is a collection of outstanding bar stools that combine first quality trendy materials with the traditional art of upholstery characteristic of the Valencia based company. The second product is a top design sofa, an incredibly new design never seen in the market that offers innovation, design and maximum comfort.
On one hand the designers from Muka were inspired by the whales that came from the North Sea to the Basque coast when designing these Nordic style bar stools. "Balea" means whale in Basque, and the rounded shapes of this stool remind us indeed to a whale’s belly.
The decorative horizontal seams of the seat also resemble the belly of these cetaceans. Their soft and organic lines with Nordic style show us the wooden legs with a very natural and warm finishing, the upholstery of the seat combines amazing textures with a cheerful splash of color.
The legs are made of solid rounded oak or beech wood. In this way we were able to maintain, in both, the materials used and the making process, the identity and the character of a handmade product.
On the other hand Hug by Cristian Reyes, is an innovative sofa concept, 100% handicraft made, the main features worth highlighting are its high aesthetic freshness and its innovative character. A delicate mixture of rounded and exaggerated details that result in a unique and original piece with a very particular personality, amazing style and clean elegance, a sofa that traps you, embraces you and invites you to sit comfortable in its arms and let your imagination fly.
The combination of bright colors and trendy fabrics enhance even more the beauty and warmth of this piece. A piece that provides maximum comfort and is able to integrate itself in any type of space due to its outstanding design.
