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.
‘mbrace’ takes an unconventional approach to outdoor furniture
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’.
