“The design of HUSK for the home collection of Moroso lent itself to the international sensibility of the outdoor collection M’Afrique, manufactured in Dakar, Senegal. Thorpe had the privilege to travel to Africa and work with the M’Afrique team to collaboratively develop the products for the outdoor collection.” – Marc Thorpe

Moroso:

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.
