Curved beauty: Käbu sofa by Expormim

Valencian company Expormim launched Käbu, a new outdoor sofa designed by Javier Pastor. Meaning “curve” in Japanese, Käbu was created by stretching a durable mesh fabric over a lightweight frame, so that the curved back of the Käbu sofa lends it a soft and sculptural appearance. The sofa is available in two finishes, Batyline Senso and 3D Mesh finish. The 3D Mesh is a highly resistant and durable fabric with good ventilation capacity that has been formulated exclusively for Expormim. The sofa is available in brown-taupe or black.

Founded in 1960, Spanish company Expormim has over 50 years of experience conceiving furniture pieces for indoor and outdoor use. Expormim began as a manufacturer of wicker baskets before making the transition to furniture. The name is a conflation of “exportadora”, meaning exporter, and "mimbre," meaning wicker. Today, Expormim sells its products in over 40 countries.
