Love (Me) Tender Sofa
Designed by: Patricia Urquiola

Year of production: 2014
Capture the solid’s lightness, all its softness, and transform it into a design project. Patricia Urquiola trusts her intuition and designs a modular system in a new shape and construction. Her technical approach features an aluminium frame, rounded wooden legs, an abundance of cushions, tables and horizontal surfaces. Just a few easily assembled interchangeable parts. The result surprises and deceives the senses. The fullness of the modules is contrasted by the lightness of the platforms that seem capable of defying gravity as imaginary structures on stilts suspended over the floor. The legs that appear to have little to do with the frame are actually the pillars that can be anchored to it and grouped in multiple compositions. The covering in soft wool jersey that stretches in both width and length fits and outlines the forms with the elegant accuracy of the pleating in continuation of the approach first expressed with M.a.s.s.a.s. in 2012.
