Morgan launches Porto Collection
Morgan, contract furniture designer and manufacturer, will launch its new Porto collection at Sleep + Eat 2018 (20th-21st November, Olympia London) on stand C60.
Stemming from an ambition to find a fresh and exciting approach to the archetypal tub chair, the Porto collection distinguishes itself with a combination of clean elegant lines and luxurious timber and upholstery detailing.
Following the current hotel design trends, Morgan Studio has developed a collection that offers “luxury for all”. This is a trend that is growing in the hotel world; boutique hotels down to hostels are looking for good design and luxury which is fresh, affordable and not confined to 5 star hospitality.
Engineered and detailed for sophistication and affordability, the Porto collection is light, minimal and versatile. The ergonomics and foam specification ensure comfort in both dining and lounge configurations. Morgan believes that luxury means comfort, as well as elegant detailing and a high quality finish.
There are many ways of achieving luxury with the Porto collection: five back variations, timber and metal base options as well as the scope for customization inherent in the collection. There is versatility to tailor the product to the bespoke aesthetic of each project.
Starting from a full tub, the collection expands to offer a sculptural arm that is cut out from the side of the shell and also a loose back cushion option. This can be upholstered in plain or quilted fabric. The 3 armchairs and 2 side chair options can be specified with an upholstered base, a show wood timber base, or a steel frame base. Further customization accents include leather trim, a ferrule detail and custom RAL epoxy powder coat finishes.
Morgan design manager Erin Johnson comments, “Our initial thought was to develop a lightweight, small footprint tub that could offer something different. Where sectors used to have clear cut boundaries, this is no longer the case. In response, we’ve created a collection which, through built-in flexibility, transcends those sectors. A sleek and contemporary metal base is fitting for the workplace while a model embellished with upholstery detailing is more at home in hospitality.”
The Morgan range can be seen on stand C60 at this years Sleep+Eat event
