Salone Milan 2011 Furniture Fair Preview: Kartell Foliage Seating System By Patricia Urquiola
Trust Patricia Urquiola to design something comfortable yet stylish. The Spanish designer once again joins forces with Kartell and this time the result is the rather imaginatively designed Foliage Seating System. The Foliage Sofa will be exhibited at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan and as you can see bares the signature Urquiola style. Urquiola wanted to make the sofa appear like that it grew naturally in plastic and hence the eaves form a crown resting on a framework of branches which virtually form a seat. The sofa features thermoplastic legs and a polyurethane foam seat which is upholstered in fabric in a leaf-shaped motif.
