Moel Small Ottoman (Red Dot Award)
MOEL designed by Inga Sempé
Wining the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2007 “BEST OF THE BEST” and with the exception of its all-enveloping back, Moël draws heavily on Ligne Roset’s longstanding expertise in the field of all-foam models. With its generous comfort underlined by its soft, rounded shape, Moël will appeal most to lovers of an informal, relaxed lifestyle, who want to welcome their friends in the most convivial way possible. Not forgetting, of course, that Moël does not look like any other seat in existence.
The ottoman is also bi-colored: Inga Sempé recommends that the sides of the ottoman match the exterior of the sofa or armchair, and that the front/back parts and top of the ottoman match the interior of the sofa or armchair.
