Concept

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 weatherability only DEDON can provide. An ideal choice for chill-out, play or conversation areas, the collection is equally suited to large gatherings and intimate get-togethers. In addition to classic Vulcano, MU is also available in the cool, light gray of Accona. 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.” MU is characterized by an almost obsessive attention to detail, from the seamless precision with which the modules’ legs fit together to the subtle complexity of the weave, which blends different widths and color gradations of DEDON Fiber. Most impressive of all, however, is the sheer diversity of configurations MU’s space-saving modular design makes possible.
