Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
HUSK is inspired by the outer shell of corn. The fields of corn punctuate the landscape of northern Italy, in particular around the city of Udine. Corn is used as a resource globally across all boarders and takes many forms. For Thorpe, this was an opportunity to translate the architecture of the husk from an ear of corn to produce a globally recognizable and accepted object for daily use. The design of Husk for the home collection of Moroso lent itself to the international sensibility of the outdoor collection M’Afrique, manufactured in Dakar Senegal.
