design by Marc Thorpe, 2016
Husk is inspired by the outer shell of corn. Corn fields paint the landscape of northern Italy, especially around the city of Udine. Corn is a global resource, crosses borders and takes many forms.
For Thorpe, this is the opportunity to transform the shell architecture of a corn cob into a universally recognizable and accepted everyday product. The Husk project for Moroso's home collection follows the international sensitivity of the M'Afrique outdoor collection, produced in Dakar, Senegal.
