Redondo by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso
Updated: Jan 26, 2020
An enclosed yet open space, a roundness that becomes a cavity, a return to the origins which evokes the protective intimacy of a hug. Redondo is independent of its context, it requires a certain amount of space around it to appreciate its roundness.
It is a collection with a distinctive two part shape, the padded shell embraces the huge seat cushions. Its curves are shown off by the total absence of sharp corners and the softness of the fabric, and the quilted decoration where the thread, like the lines of a pencil, draws an elegant three-dimensional form to call to the senses. In its design, Redondo is inspired by 1950s and 60s American cars, their upholstered interiors, the soft curves of their bodywork, and on-the-road comfort for long coast-to-coast drives. To the observer, it is the stage for scenes for everyday life.
