Rift Armchair

by Moroso

Rift is a geologically inspired armchair designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso. The design of the armchair 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 armchair works well at home and is exceptionally well suited for reception areas, lobbies and other open public spaces.

The Rift armchair is part of a collection which also includes a cantilever chair, two armchairs, two bar stoolstwo L-shaped sofa configurations and three Y-shaped sofa configurations. 

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.
