Designer Patricia Urquiola
Patricia Urquiola has an innate capacity to design objects with a strong connotation, which revolve around the upholstered families. A new look at the hammock style, presented at the Ideal House exhibition in Cologne; the ideal companion to the Smock armchair presented at last year’s Milan Furniture Show. It displays the same exploration of solids and voids, comfort and luxury, that distinguishes Urquiola’s work. This sophisticated, elegant sofa uses a light, stylised design centred around the draping over the ring-shaped armrests. The unusual feature of a full-length zip is for removing the cover and for joining different materials. The two rings have become arms, the objective lightness is maintained and transmitted by the slightly foamed shell. The small armchair stands on a slide or on a central tube. The particular feature is the smock stitch, embroidered at the sides, giving a luxurious and refined quality. A leather version is also envisaged, again confirming Moroso as a company that offers a unique product representing a way of working that, even though industrialized in its processes, remains hand-crafted in the attention to detail and the finishes.
