Grey wintertime makes me lounge for a summer moment and Murcia offers the correct sphere!
Funny. I copied the photo’s from their site Mukalab and each photo came with the following text:
Outdoor Collection for Mindo designed by Muka Design Lab (2017).
Murcia, is a outdoor furniture collection, designed by Muka in 2016, it consist in a love seat, a simple sofa, an adjustable loungechair, a coffee table and side table, to complete a set of pieces that give versatility to compose a terrace.
The structure is made of lacquered aluminum, which is the support for another interior structure covered with rope, as if it were a nest, transmits security and allows interior ventilation, ideal for hot places. The backs and seats are completed with upholstered cushions in special outdoor fabric, which brings warmth from other types of outdoor fabrics.
About Muka Design Lab
Muka Design Lab was established in 2011 by Laxmi Nazabal and Lucas Abajo
Laxmi Nazabal graduated in Fine Arts and brings creativity, color and aesthetic to their projects. She met Lucas studying a grant for the DZ-Design Center in Product Design at the Coventry University School of Arts and Engineering where they both graduated with honors in 2006. After graduating, Laxmi worked in ONN Arquitectura Interior focused on interior design and furniture design. After gaining experience, in 2011 they founded Muka Design Lab to pursue the exploration of their own unique concepts.
Lucas Abajo has a degree in Engineering in Industrial Design bringing structure, form and shape to create balanced designs that reflect harmony with their surroundings. Lucas met Laxmi studying on a grant for the DZ-Design Center in Product Design at the Coventry University School of Arts and Engineering where they both graduated with honors in 2006. After graduating, Lucas worked in Weiss Design, ADN Design and LNKIDO as freelance focused on product design, stands design and interior design. After gaining experience working in those product design studios, in 2011 they founded Muka Design Lab to pursue the exploration of their own unique concepts.
Mindo was formed in 2007 by four friends and university classmates who had a common idea and goal: to find a product that they could design, produce and market worldwide. Each brought a different skill level and experience to the group and shortly after graduation, they created the Mindo Collection in the factory they acquired outside Shanghai. After the product line was designed, prototyped and launched, it met with immediate success in the European, Middle East and local markets for both hospitality and retail requirements.
Building on this experience, Mindo has formed a U.S. corporation and opened warehouses with offices in California and Florida so that the collection will be available to the North American hospitality and trade-related markets on the local level.
It is a bit pity Mindo doesn’t give credits to its designers…
