Meaning 'curve' in Japanese, KÃ¤bu is a new outdoor sofa designed by Javier Pastor for Valencian company Expormim.
Created by stretching a durable mesh fabric over a lightweight frame, the curved back of the KÃ¤bu sofa lends it a soft and sculptural appearance.
Javier Pastor, industrial designer and teacher at UPV, explains, "The light structure is dressed with a technical fabric that becomes skin and wrap. The curvature generated as a result of the fabric tension on the structure highlights the desire for a lightweight, upholstered frame. An upholstery that avoids excessive prominence."
The sofa is available in two finishes, Batyline Senso® and 3D Mesh finish. The 3D Mesh is a highly resistant and durable technical fabric with excellent ventilation capacity that has been formulated exclusively for Expormim.
Available in brown-taupe or black , the new sofa is perfectly suited to contemporary architectural environments.
