Husk is inspired by the outer shell of corn.
The fields of corn punctuate the landscape of northern Italy, in particular around the city of Udine. Corn is used as a resource globally across all boarders and takes many forms. For Thorpe, this was an opportunity to translate the architecture of the husk from an ear of corn to produce a globally recognizable object for daily use. The design of Husk for the upholstered home collection of Moroso is offered in various sizes including dining and armchair versions. In addition, a new textile was design by Marc Thorpe and produced by Febrik for the collection of Husk exclusively for Moroso.
