The Redondo armchair is a curvaceous and elegant armchair designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso. The design is inspired by the American muscle cars of the 1950s and 1960s - the sinuous curves of the bodywork, the plush interiors and their promise of comfort and modernity. These are reflected in the gentle curves and contemporary femininity of the Redondo armchair, which is also very comfortable and inviting. This sophisticated armchair works well in both traditional and contemporary design schemes, whether it is in a living room, reception area or hotel suite.
The Redondo armchair s part of a collection which also includes 3 armchairs, a sofa and a footstool.
The covers of the armchair, which are removable and can be upholstered in a huge range of fabrics, are hand-quilted in a unique pattern designed by Patricia Urquiola. The quilting not only highlights the curves of the armchair but also adds a three-dimensional feel to the fabric. The covers are also available in a non-quilted version, in which case the fabrics can be selected from an exclusive collection of 3-D quilted 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.
