Cocooning 2.0

A side chair for our next phase of staycations.

I took a trip to Amsterdam a few years ago, and one of my favourite stops was the Moooi mothership. The Dutch powerhouse creates design that often has a sense of humour—that ever-present Horse lamp is one of their classics, and they’ve got a line of pottery that takes the classic Dutch Delft blue and twists it, as though in a hurricane—and much of that is due to the work of designer Marcel Wanders. But he’s just as likely to produce modern classics, like the Nut chair for Moooi. It’s a perfect example of a trend we’re seeing in new furniture designs for 2016: furniture that envelops,  cocooning you as you read a book, sip a cocktail, hang with friends.
