The Mafalda armchair, designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso, is generous in proportions and in spirit. The strong, contemporary shape of the natural oak frame contrasts with the welcoming embrace of the upholstered seat and wraparound back. The result is an armchair with a distinctive, almost humorous character.
The Mafalda armchair is ideal as an occasional chair and works well for both public and private spaces. The chair is available in a variety of different fabric options, all of which can be specified with or without the horizontal stitching.
The Mafalda armchair is part of a collection which also includes a chair. Please see the Product Tech Sheet for more details and contact us for more information on available options and advice on fabrics.
Patricia Urquiola is one of the most influential furniture designers working today. She was born in Oviedo in Spain but now lives and works in Milan. Urquiola trained as an architect and worked with Achille Castiglioni and Piero Lissoni before starting her own studio in 2001. She has since designed numerous products for leading furniture brands including Moroso, B&B Italia, Molteni & C and Kartell. Urquiola’s designs are unconventional, emphatic and experimental; blending humanist sensibilities and technical expertise – qualities that also inform her work as an architect.
Moroso is, without doubt, one of the best furniture brands in the world. Under the creative direction of Patrizia Moroso, the brand combines its manufacturing expertise (especially in sofas and seating) with creative input from leading designers such as Patricia Urquiola, Ron Arad and Nendo to create a broad range of furniture of unmatched quality and creativity. Moroso products work well for both private and public spaces and are ideal for making a strong design statement.
