‘heath’ includes multiple sofa and chair configurations from L to C- shapes and a pair of amorphous stone-topped coffee tables. the deep seating of these curvilinear pieces is precisely molded to embrace the body. set atop turned wood legs which extend to frame the seat, heath chairs appear to be suspended in mid-air.

 

 

‘the heath sofa was born from a project that we’re doing for a hotel, we wanted to create something that was a little iconic and would take up the full width of a typical guest room and be sensuous. we called it heath – which gives a  sense of rolling greenery – and to create an environment that we would want to kick, lie back and chill’. – george yabu, founding partner of yabu pushelberg

‘oiseau’, which translates to bird in french is comprised of wood-frame dining and lounge chairs and solid wood dining and coffee tables. the versatile pieces re-interprets the notion of a formal dining setting, inviting proportions create a relaxing and intimate dining experience.

 

 

‘the oiseau pieces is all about the beauty in form, while making it ergonomically comfortable. we were interested in dropping the usual height of the furniture because we believe that people eat, dine, lounge in a much casual way and by lowering the height, it naturally encourages people to sit on your side’.glenn pushelberg, founding partner of yabu pushelberg

the entire furniture collection is in fact modular; the subtle elegance focusing on the form and accentuated by the deep and earthy colors used. the ‘heath and oiseau’ collection marks yabu pushelberg’s most recent foray into furniture design with previous collaborations such as ‘james‘ and ‘blink‘ for stellar works.
