tribu elio soffa
Designer: Yabu Pushelberg
Elio, referring to the Greek sun god Helios and designed by Canadian design firm Yabu Pushelberg, is inspired by the motion of light as it reflects and refracts on landscapes and objects. Multiple soft shades of yarn are woven into one strand, which mimics the hues of natural light and makes each chair unique. The handwoven seat in weather-resistant Tricord rope, draws inward to create a warm, intimate cocoon effect. The 2-seat sofa is framed by natural teak, which supports the seating shell primarily through the back legs that cross the shell.
