High-back synthetic fibre garden sofa
In conceiving MBARQ, Herkner aimed to define a space in which to relax, chat or concentrate. He drew inspiration from the traditional form of the indoor alcove, transporting its essence to the outdoors. “I see the collection as a working and meeting nest,” the designer says. “Placing two sofas opposite of each other gives you a kind of open room in nature. ”
MBARQ is an outdoor seating system characterized by deep cushions and organically shaped backs in different heights. A semi-transparent, triaxial weave of DEDON Fiber creates a basket-like effect that envelops cushions and users alike. Working with three different colors of fiber, Herkner and renowned color specialist Giulio Ridolfo have taken a textile approach to the weave, creating a playful yet sophisticated color world. With its combination of DEDON fiber and powder-coated aluminum frame, MBARQ is light, strong and extremely weather-resistant. MBARQ’s partially extrahigh backs create a sense of intimacy and security, while the loose, soft cushions ensure cosiness.
