Hub Up Late!

To celebrate Melbourne Indesign, a visit to Hub Furniture from 5-10pm on Friday 12 August as part of the Indesign Up Late is a must!

 Hub will be presenting incredible new designs from Moroso's collection, alongside stunning pieces from Hub's stable of brands featuring Lowe Furniture, Molteni & C, Billiani and Ivano Redaelli. They are also launching the first in an incredible Design Speed Dating program, giving a lucky few the money-can’t-buy opportunity to spend time with influential design powerhouse, Patrizia Moroso when she visits Australia in October. Add Spanish glass artist, Luis Parades' first Australian exhibition and delicious treats courtesy of Piccolina Gelateria and this is sure to be a night to remember.

One Moroso product on display will be the Art Deco-influenced seating range, Double Zero. Moroso recently teamed with architect David Adjaye to create the range, which was unveiled at the Salone del Mobile Milan furniture fair this year and is about to have its first Australian unveiling at the Hub Melbourne Showroom this Friday as a part of Indesign: The Event.

The Double Zero chairs and stools each comprise two circular pads that form the seat and back. The upholstered cushions are held within rings of tubular stainless steel, which is also bent to form a supporting frame of sleigh-type legs and optional arms. Finished in chrome, the metal is also used to form a square element spanning the gap between the legs of the chair, bracing the structure and providing a footrest.

The design is also doubled up to form a small two-seater sofa, with the pair of pads placed side by side and joined where the metal hoops touch. The metal frames are available in a range of colours and upholstery options include plain and patterned fabrics as well as leather.

The stunning Double Zero piece received in the Hub Melbourne Showroom is upholstered in sumptuous navy velvet with a beautiful chrome frame and will be sitting pretty among an array of other wow-worthy new Moroso pieces for Indesign attendees to swoon over.

Also being launched on Friday evening is Hub’s latest exhibition Historias Sumergidas by Spanish glass artist Luis Parades. Captured in glass, each one-of-a-kind piece of work in the Historias Sumergidas collection is handmade by Luis using expert glass-blowing techniques, including hot melting, thermos-forming, casting and engraving. Suspended in time, air bubbles and ripples form organic designs that are entirely unique and inspired by urban dwellings and the lost, underwater city of Atlantis.

We look forward to seeing you all this weekend at Hub! Hub Melbourne Showroom at 63 Exhibition Street is open from 5pm-10pm on Friday 12 August, and for the very special Hub installation at James Makin Gallery on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 August from 10am-6pm.

 

Thank you and kind regards,
