MBRACE takes a joyfully unconventional approach to poolside furniture, bringing Dedon Fiber seating and a solid teak base together for the very first time. The result is an eye-catching, instantly likable collection of chairs—wingback, lounger, rocker and optional footstool—that captures the spirit of barefoot luxury while extending the Dedon design language into new, more Nordic territory.
Conceived by German designer Sebastian Herkner, MBRACE fully lives up to the welcoming gesture of its name. One experiences a warm, secure, cocooning feeling when being embraced by the chair’s extra-wide back, especially after a cool dip in the pool. Herkner designed the seat to be invitingly comfortable even late in the season, after the luxurious seat cushions have been stored away.
One of MBRACE’s most distinctive features is its open, mesh-like triaxial weave, which consists of three different fibers, each with its own profile and color. Herkner and Dedon developed three unique colorways for the collection—Spice, Pepper and Atlantic. The innovative double-layered moiré weave seen in MBRACE was inspired by textiles, to create a sense of openness.
The sculptural designs expand upon Dedon’s signature low-slung sleek style. A base of simple teak legs also mark the first time Dedon has incorporated timber within a product. This captivating collection – the first to bring rocking chairs to the poolside—opens new possibilities for enjoying life outdoors.
