sebastian herkner‘s woven ‘mbrace’ chairs for dedon are shown at imm cologne from january 18-24, 2016. ‘mbrace’ takes a joyfully unconventional approach to furniture, bringing dedon’s fiber seating and a solid teak base together for the very first time. the result is an eye-catching, instantly likable collection of chairs — wingback, lounger, rocker and optional footstool — that captures the spirit of barefoot luxury while extending the dedon design language into new, more nordic territory.

herkner designed the seats to be invitingly comfortable, creating a warm, secure, cocooning feeling when embraced by the chair’s extra-wide back, especially after a cool dip in the pool. one of ‘mbrace’s most distinctive features is an open, mesh-like triaxial weave consisting of three different fibers, each with its own profile and color. working in close collaboration with world-renowned colorist giulio ridolfo, herkner and dedon developed three unique colorways for the collection — spice, pepper and atlantic. with their resonances of travel, trade and adventure, the colorways perfectly support herkner’s aim of addressing the wide, international audience of dedon, including ‘young and sophisticated explorers’.
