Yabu Pushelberg’s New E-Commerce Brand Departo Offers Design Essentials for Globetrotters
Interior Design Hall of Fame members George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg embrace a global outlook in their lauded hospitality projects. Now all it takes is Wi-Fi to access the latest jet-setting creations from the Yabu Pushelberg founders, thanks to the launch of departo. A collaboration with Yuichiro Hori of manufacturer Stellar Works, the e-commerce brand offers what the cofounders dub “essentials for global nomads”: a collection encompassing furniture, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, and glassware. (Lighting is up next.) Highlights include the Folding stool and chair, both with steel structures, canvas seats, ash legs, and leather handles for portability. Coordinating benches, stools, and trestle tables are also available. There’s even a café table, an ideal place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the company’s stoneware mug, offered in five hues.
