Belt is a modular sofa system designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso. The sofa is designed to emphasise softness and comfort above all else. Padded covers fold over the aluminium frame to create a relaxed and carefree shape, held together by a knitted belt to create a highly distinctive design.
Belt is a modular sofa system with endless opportunities for customisation. Different elements can be combined to create multiple configurations, from simple two or three seater sofas to extravagant U or L shape arrangements with chaise longue and backless units. The covers of the sofa are removable and can be upholstered in a huge range of fabrics, including leathers and COM. In addition, the distinctive knitted belt which winds around the covers can be made from the same fabric as the covers or in leather.

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.
