Hosu / Work lounge furniture

Inspired by our observations about the use of the floor as an endless worksurface, Hosu encourages spreading out. Designed by Patricia Urquiola, this unique work lounge creates a comforting personal space to relax and get things done. The single seat lounge can be ordered with a convertible chaise foldout. The two-seat sofa brings two people together even if they are focused on different tasks. Hosu features convenient rear and side storage pockets and cord pass-through. Its unique textured fabric, also designed by Urquiola, is offered in six exclusive colors. For the European market Hosu is manufactured in Europe.

This lounge chair and sofa are incredible. The individual chair is ergonomic enough to be extremely comfortable both when sitting upright and lounging, and yet down to the last detail is still an item of furniture that could become one of the design classics of the future. The fold-out footrest is so easy to use, the cover is perfectly crafted and inviting, and the two-seater even makes work seem fun – a well-deserved, excellent iF gold award.
