Outdoor furniture company Dedon launches a collection of outdoor chairs designed by German designer Sebastian Herkner. The Mbrace Collection consists of a lounge chair, a wing chair, a rocking chair and a footrest.

One of the main features of the collection is the weave-like upholstery and mesh made of three different fibres, each with a specific profile and colour. Herkner developed the three colour options with Italian colour master Giulio Ridolfo.
