Yabu Pushelberg, a multidisciplinary design firm founded by George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg in Toronto, launch its second collection with Henge on March 21st, ahead of Salone del Mobile 2019.
The amazing collaboration brings the Noce and Puddle collections to life.
Named Noce, or Walnut in Italian, the family of dining and lounge chairs, handmade in solid wood, were inspired by the sculptural form of a tree. Three elongated legs that embody the strength of a trunk support a gently rounded back and armrest that signify a botanical crown. The proportions of Noce were mastered over the span of two years through the precision and craftsmanship of Henge’s team. Upholstered in nubuck leather, Noce is available in a tonal palette that ranges from honey, taupe, nude, grey to charcoal.
Puddle is a set of three simple, yet sophisticated coffee tables that nod to the natural formations of a landscape. Each, slightly different in proportion, captures the calm, serene beauty of nature with a top that pays homage to a tree canopy supported by tapered legs. Puddle is finished in silver, bronze and burnished brass.
This is the second time Yabu Pushelberg has partnered with Henge on a collection. The two teams were drawn together by a shared design philosophy, appreciation for detail, craftsmanship and the beauty and strength of the natural world. The Noce and Puddle collections will be available for order during Salone del Mobile 2019 in Milan.
