The Husk Collection was inspired by the outer shell of corn. The Designer Marc Thorpe wanted to associate this element, very popular in North Italy – ear of corn – to produce a globally recognizable object for daily use.
Originally constructed from a painted steel structure, the seating designs were completed by woven yarn typically used for making fishing nets – each one hand – made by skilled craftsmen – resulting in outdoor furniture characterized by the colorful strands of polyethylene employed to form its shell.
