The dialogue between the natural and the artificial is a dominant theme in Patricia Urquiola’s work and aesthetics. It is particularly visible in the Foliage collection, a family of soft chairs created especially for residential use. The key players are a two-seater sofa and an armchair, that seem to have grown – naturally.

The painted metal frame provides support for a comfortable seat reminiscent of the crown of a tree, with top-stitched leaves. The covers are available in velvet or Trevira fabrics in a variety of shades that can be combined in original ways with the white, black or red legs.

The Foliage sofa and armchair is also available in three Memphis fabrics – Letraset, Schizzo and Burundi – designed by Ettore Sottsass and Nathalie du Pasquier.
