A contemporary reinterpretation of a classic.
Taking on button tufting, giving it a new spin, revolutionizing the concept, Patricia Urquiola has designed a range of products which appear to be liquid in shape as if they are melting over their frame to create soft, comforting, almost casual lines where the fabric or leather are fixed to the shell using press studs.
The pieces appear to have a shawl draped over their shoulders, and the seat has various overlapping cushions: an almost obsessive attention to the design of its covering, layering leathers and other materials, colours, and fabric types. A sort of luxury patchwork which, when worn, gives the piece a nomadic, global spirit.
