The circular shape of the Caramelo MP1N Naturales Pouf, part of the Mangas Collection, makes it a beautiful accent item for a variety of interior applications. It can be used as an ottoman, a stand alone seat, or as part of a modular composition of poufs from the Mangas Collection. The collection name "Mangas", translates in English to "sleeves". And the series is based on a patchwork of different wool knits traditionally found in clothing. These irresistible modern poufs playfully combine texture, color and shape to help create an intriguing lounge space. For use as extra seating, or as a foot rest, this beautifully crafted pouf is sure to find a useful spot. Made of 100% wool and stuffed with a plush and comfortable foam filling. Select this neutral colored pouf, or its colorful counterpart.
Can be combined with a variety of other Mangas Collection pieces for modular seating. Winner of many prestigious awards including 2011 MODERN DESIGN AWARD by Dwell Magazine, ICFF Editors Award, and the reddot design award recipient for Product Design. The Mangas Pouf was awarded the Delta Adi Fad Selection, 2011.
