“Sabine Marcelis and Hem Join Forces on This Delicious New Design”

Behind the design

"I have this fascination and love with the donut shape. It's just such a perfectly complete and finite shape. Simple yet not boring. And the curve and void create a beautiful depth in almost all materials."

Knitting the Boa Pouf

From inception to the final product, it took us almost two years and a dozen prototypes to refine the technique and to perfect the pouf. Evocative of our progressive and experimental spirit and Sabine Marcelis’s love of color and fascination with the round donut shape, the Boa Pouf feels and appears as if naturally inflated and comes in three vibrant upholstery options, Sulfur Yellow, Cotton Candy, and Oatmeal.
