Adret & Ubac is a design for seating inspired from the mountains by Michigan-based designer Susan Qiu. Adret and ubac are French geographical terms for parts of mountain ranges while Qiu’s furniture piece is a rug for the floor that folds up in the centre to create a back rest. Different tones used on two sides of the ridge signify the adret and ubac of the mountain. Qiu explains: “It’s essentially a rug on the floor that elevates at the center to function as a backrest. The form defines dual spaces for both conversation and self retreat. Different tones used on two sides of the ridge signify the adret and ubac of the mountain, the binary nature of the piece, as active catalyst for social interaction as well as for passive repose.”
