design Meneghello Paolelli
The designers declare “The Hug collection represents the consolidation of the collaboration between Meneghello Paolelli and S•CAB. It is a complex an d ambitious project, a project that started from the origins of the company, a monocoque chair, and which comes to deal with real issues of usability and sustainability which represent today's society.”
Hug is technically a technopolymer monocoque, but it is actually a flexible system in which the components combine to create different chair and armchair configurations. Designed for the outdoors, it also fits well in interior spaces, with the possibility of covering some of its parts with fabric. The attention to the decorative aspect, not to the detriment of functionality, is evidenced by the proposal of the textile variants: a selection of soft shades, from neutrals to light blues to biscuit colour as wel l as black and white, made interesting by a melange effect and a visible weft, to be chosen among the various proposals in the catalogue, in combination with the shells for which, in addition to passe - partout colours (linen, dove grey, anthracite, mustard and olive green), S•CAB proposes the new sage green and caramel shades.
