Mafalda Chair

The Mafalda chair, 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 a chair with a distinctive, almost humorous character.  

The Mafalda chair is ideal as a dining or occasional chair and works well for both public and private spaces.  The chair is available in different fabric options in addition to the ones listed in the options below, all of which can be specified with horizontal seams; please contact us if you would like more information.

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.
