Design: Patricia Urquiola (2012)
Dimensions: 26.8x25.5x31x18.5in (WxDxHxSeatH)
Blunt blocks rounded and smoothed by some imaginary blade. Geometric order is broken, swept away by a movement, a line which follows the contour. The different faces reveal veins formed by stitching, at times as visible as tacking, at others disappearing. The outer shape seems to be independent from the inner frame and padding. Sofa, armchair, chair: a modular system in which each component has its own independent character, both in its use and sculptural feel.
The armchairs (code 001 – 061) are in injected flame retardant polyester foam over internal steel frame. Feet in black polypropylene screwed to the structure. M.A.S.S.A.S. collection covers are removable. Fabric collection is bonded with polyester fiber and polyurethane to give special support to the cover.
