British furniture designer and manufacturer Morgan is expanding its curvaceous Bilbao collection with two sofas and a lounge chair with a timber base. Designed by Tim Rundle, the new additions will debut at Clerkenwell Design Week (23-25 May).
Bilbao lounge chair and three-seater sofa
First launched at London Design Festival last year, the Bilbao collection was inspired by a desire to juxtapose soft, organic surfaces with crisp, sharp edges. A two-seater and three-seater sofa explore this contrast further, with the latter featuring a distinctive kidney bean shape. Like the original lounge chair, the sofas are fully upholstered and planted firmly on the ground.

The new lounge chair offers designers and specifiers a different aesthetic, combining sensuous upholstery and striking timber detail. The base reinforces the fluidity of the other pieces in the collection, giving the appearance of being carved from a single block of wood, with all elements blending into one another.
“We’re seeing an increased preference for softness in hospitality spaces. The Bilbao collection, with its full volumes and primarily upholstered surfaces, will help designers bring warmth to those environments, from the social spaces of hotel lobbies and lounges to the privacy of the bedrooms.” Tim Rundle

“Bilbao was well received after launching last year and we’ve since seen it widely specified across all sectors. These new additions offer considerably more options and flexibility to meet clients’ aesthetic and spatial requirements.” Morgan’s Design Director Erin Johnson
