With its sweepingly wide and imposingly high backrests, ornately woven tri-color wicker frames, and sumptuous upholstery, MBARQ deep seating from designer Sebastian Herkner translates the refined forms and feelings of the classic French salon into a modern age and outdoor context.
Herkner drew inspiration from the traditional form of the indoor alcove, transporting its essence 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 a versatile outdoor seating system comprising sofa modules, daybed modules, and a footstool. The collection is characterized by deep cushions and a choice of organically shaped backs in different heights. A semi-transparent, triaxial weave of DEDON Fiber wraps you in a colorful mosaic. 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 a powder-coated aluminum frame in a choice of Terracotta, Nori, or Lipari, MBARQ is light, strong, and extremely weather-resistant.
Category A NATURA Acrylic fabric seat cushions are included for all chair styles. NATURA has a cotton-like touch and carries color beautifully. The cushions are constructed out of water-repellent yarns and wrapped around a quick-drying foam core for long-lasting outdoor durability.
Note: The additional back cushions are highly recommended, as the depth of seating approaches 40".
