Coat Series By Sebastian Herkner

Share |

German designer Sebastian Herkner has created interesting contemporary furniture collection specifically for an Italian furniture manufacturer Moroso. The Coat collection is inspired by the hosiery industry and you can trace that influence in the polka dot pattern that covers the lower part of the furniture pieces. The polka dot pattern is supposed to refer to the non-slippery soles on the socks, but that pattern also helps in toning down the neon of the upholstery.

Coat Series Furniture By Sebastian Herkner

The Coat Furniture collection includes a lightweight armchair and sofa, both designed with a complete modern appeal, with the dots that tone down the vibrant colors making it appear a bit submerged. The upholstery seems to wrap the base of the furniture and to cover it like a blanket, making it appear really cozy.

The furnishing pieces look really soft and comfortable, but to add to that, the collection includes functional baskets in coordinating colors. The baskets come from a previous collection by Herkner, the Bask Storing Baskets. The furniture from Coat Collection comes without supports but it rests firmly on the floor, although it is quite mobile. Here is some more description from Herkner:

The idea comes from the hosiery industry, from the non-slip soles used for children´s socks. Prints that are functional and decorative at the same time. The upholstery, a soft and supple removable cover, wraps around and dresses the seat, a simple trick which maintains the design coherence intact.

What looks especially intriguing in the Coat Series is the use of vivid hues and vibrant combinations. For example, the Coat armchair comes in various combinations and there is one available in red ombre variation. Among other interesting color combinations is the neon yellow and toned down concrete gray with a contrasting almost black wicker basket. The baskets by the way complete the general picture. So, do you like the vivid Coat Series furniture?
