Cool Find: the Hosu Collection by Patricia Urquiola
It is rare to find comfort, convenience, and storage packaged into one well-designed convertible lounge chair. Hosu, designed by Patricia Urquiola, offers just that. Designed on the premise that people seek comfortable and relaxing atmospheres to get things done, the Hosu is a modern approach to the conventional lounger. Offered in two designs — a single and two-seater — the lounger can easily transform into a foldout chaise. Side pockets allow you to store your laptop wires or remote controls—perfect for working from home or playing video games with your kids. The Hosu will be available in bold colors including blue, green, yellow, and charcoal. Want something more sophisticated? It is also available in leather. Find it at Coalesse in the Merchandise Mart starting in October.
