Created with a softer and more flexible structure, Husk boasts deep
seats and down feather cushions allowing for maximum comfort. Husk
is available in two sizes. The shorter version combines the seat
with a backrest, whereas in the longer version, the two cushioned
components are separated. Whether in a solid colour or mélange
fabrics, Husk maintains a casual elegance.
Nowadays, almost everyone has an interest in home decor and
furnishing and is aware of design fashions and trends. The interior
designer is no longer entrusted only by major clients for
large-scale progects such has hotel, restaurants or boutiques, but
also by private individuals for their homes. People are now
accustomed to hire a designer whether they need to furnish an
apartment in a big city, renovate a villa outside the city or
restore a cottage in the country.
In some cases, the designer is a real superstar – or archistar:
examples are Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders and Karim Rashid.
Among the most famous designers in the world, Patricia Urquiola is
certainly one of the most accomplished and requested by well-known
design brands. Urquiola collaborates with several leading furniture
and home décor brands such as Moroso, B&B Italia, Rosenthal,
Alessi and many more. Many of her products are exhibited in the
permanent collations of the MoMA in New York and other museums of
contemporary art. The Spanish designer has also received many
international awards such as the Medalla de Oro al Merito en las
Bellas Artes in 2010, granted by the Spanish government and the
award of Designer of the Year in 2012 by the German magazine
For Patricia Urquiola, a piece of furniture must give “not only a
physical but also a mental sense of comfort.” This is especially
true for areas of the home dedicated to relaxation and rest, as the
living area and the bedroom.
The living area acts as a very important place where the family
members gather or welcome guests. It is very important that the
decor of this room reflects the style of the owners but also that
conveys a feeling of openness, hospitality and comfort. The sofa is
the absolute star of the living room: it is the sofa, in fact, that
welcomes residents of the house at the end of the day to talk,
relax and watch TV together or to seat together while reading a
Comfort is also the most important principle to keep in mind in the
design of the bedroom, where one spends time to rest or take a
moment for him or herself. The harmony between the elements of the
bedroom, and their location is critical to creating an environment
that makes one feel good and gives a sense of wellbeing for body
and mind. As the sofa is the star of the living room, so it is the
bed of the rooms of the sleeping area. Sleeping well means feeling
well during the day, so it is essential to choose a bed that meets
the personal needs related to a good rest.
Patricia Urquiola has created the Husk line by B&B Italia, that
includes a sofa and a bed that respond perfectly to the idea of
conveying both physical and mental comfort.
The Husk sofa truly reflects the vision of Patricia Urquiola: the
designer has designed with protective and welcoming shapes,
accentuated by pronounced seat depth and important volumes. The
Husk sofa by B&B Italia welcomes one in a warm hug and puts one
at ease with its elegant yet casual design.
The Husk bed reflects the same philosophy of the first piece of the
Husk collection, the Husk armchair: its concept is based on the
pursue of softness and comfort, the contrast between simple and
complex and a feeling of welcome and hospitality.
