About the ProductThe Marcel project is a module sofa made entirely of steel which evokes a parapet overlooking an imaginary ocean. The sofa, Marcel, consists of 90x90cm modular parts. The common base for all the angle and central modules is made of steel tubing and the cushioned seating area is made of moulded sheet metal. Both the angle and central module backrests are screwed to the base via laser-cut steel side supports, connected to each other by steel tubes of varying diameter and with cone-shaped ends. The backrests are fastened so that each part is linked and a joint connects them to the base. Just two parts (base, straight backrest and curved backrest) enable numerous combinations to be made. The backrest is also available with a cushion which can be fastened to the structure to make it more comfortable and more practical. All the cushions are made using the new Soft Ware fabrics.
The BrandMore about this Brand
EMU - Elettro Meccanica Umbra - was started in Italy in 1951 to produce military equipment; specifically radios. The founders of EMU, brothers Aldo and Angelo Biscarini, and Dante Menconi, stumbled on a process to plasticise the metal components of the radios to protect them from the weather.
