Rift is a geologically inspired sofa system designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso.The unusual asymmetric design of the sofa recalls layers of rocks and other timeless geological formations. Different elements of the sofa overlap and collide like tectonic plates, creating a palpable sense of movement and dynamism. The different layers and multiple orientation of the sofa makes it feel relaxed and inviting despite its formal, unyielding shape. The Rift sofa works well at home and is exceptionally well suited for reception areas, lobbies and other open public spaces.
The Rift sofa comes in two L-shaped and three Y-shaped configurations. The sofas are part of a collection which also includes a cantilever chair, two armchairs and two bar stools.
The covers of the sofa (which are not removable) can be upholstered in a huge range of fabrics, including leathers and COM. Elements of the sofa can be upholstered in different fabrics, offering endless design possibilities. 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.
