Design by Patricia Urquiola, 2012.
With the increasing demands of the new work day, creative people need places to work in a relaxed mode — the Hosu Two-Seat Sofa brings people together, even if they are focused on different tasks. With convenient rear and side storage pockets and cord pass-through, the Hosu Two-Seat Sofa encourages productivity while the frame design allows the back to flex, supporting the sitter's back shape. The unique textured fabric, also designed by Urquiola specifically for Hosu, is offered in exclusive colors. The soft lumbar pillows are included in choice of fabric.
"Hosu is a habitat to relax, work, think, and read. It's a different approach to a work lounge that removes all formality and replaces it with comfort." — Patricia Urquiola
