Rift is a geologically inspired bar stool designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso. The design of the bar stool recalls layers of rocks and other timeless geological formations. Different elements of the stool overlap and collide like tectonic plates, creating a palpable sense of movement and dynamism. The Rift bar stool works well at home as well as in restaurants, bars and offices.
The Rift bar stool, which is available in both bar and counter heights, is part of a collection which also includes a cantilever chair, two armchairs, two L-shaped sofa configurations and three Y-shaped sofa configurations.
The seat of the stool is polypropylene and the cantilever base is square tubular steel with powder coat finish. 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.
