Moroso | Husk

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 object for daily use. The design of Husk for the upholstered home collection of Moroso is offered in various sizes including dining and armchair versions. In addition, a new textile was design by Marc Thorpe and produced by Febrik for the collection of Husk exclusively for Moroso.
