Inspired by the Bauhaus classics, we had been experimenting since 2004 with shaped metal-tube chairs, with the intuitive desire to make a chair composed 100% of tube. We are fascinated by the idea of a continuous line that draws a three- dimensional object. On visiting the Belgian upholstery company Drisag, we have the idea of adding polyurethane foam padding directly around the metal tube to create a chair that is visually only lines. After extensive searching and testing, the textile chosen to cover the foam is produced by a sock factory, which knits an extra-long tube. Thinking of the original tube which is made thicker by the foam, we call the chair BOLD, just as the thicker version of a typeface is described. In 2009, Stephane Arriuberg and Massimiliano Iorio create the company Moustache to produce furniture. The BOLD chair is the first object in their catalogue, followed a few years later by the bench of the same name.
