Tropicalia chair, 2008 by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso. The design starts off from the same structure as the Antibodi collection, though using weaving techniques. The collection comprises a chaise longue, couch, armchair, chair, outdoor bed, swinging nest.. A tubular steel structure with complex geometrical shapes, embellished with a clever weft of threads that alternate solids and voids to a specific pattern.
Each object in the collection takes on a different personality depending on the material and the colour used. It can be made playful and cheerful by using thermoplastic polymer threads free of heavy metal and recyclable, sophisticated and precious by using leather, simple and elegant by using HT polyester double plaited cords in either one or two colours. The coloured versions are made using three threads combining different colors.
