Created for contemporary lifestyles, MU by Toan Nguyen is a modular lounge system of understated elegance and exceptional versatility. Easily adapted to any living space, it combines the comfort, modular logic and compact proportions of the best indoor systems with the kind of lightness, durability and weather ability only DEDON can provide. An ideal choice for chill-out, play or conversation areas, MU is equally suited to large gatherings and intimate get-togethers.
For Nguyen, the initial idea for MU was “to bring my know-how of indoor furniture — the culture of the sofa, the cushions, the details — to the outdoors.” The collection’s name derives from a Zen term that translates roughly as ‘reduced to pure essence.’ And as Nguyen himself explains, “We worked very hard to reduce volumes and everything unnecessary, focusing instead on comfort cushions and the ways in which modules can be combined.”.
In a first for outdoor furniture, Nguyen used Ferrari Batyline fabric support for MU’s cushions, ensuring levels of comfort only a Zen monk could refuse. MU’s fine legs elevate it to just the right height, creating a sense of lightness while showing off the patio underneath. And the collection’s subtle weave, handwoven from tonally and texturally varied stands of fiber, has a rich and luxurious depth that befits its elegant, understated design while showing off the handiwork of DEDON’s weavers to maximum effect.
MU comes in a wide range of modules and includes daybeds, benches, side tables and coffee tables of varying sizes. The modules can be configured in endless variations, their cushions specially tailored to create a seamless lounging experience no matter how you arrange the collection. One of the most sophisticated outdoor lounge systems ever created, MU looks and feels right at home indoors as well.
