Despite her rational approach to design, Patricia Urquiola's product never lack in poetry. The latest armchair for Moroso is a great example.

Patricia Urquiola has the rare ability to take a rather simple and accessible technology, such as bended steel and plaiting, and create a product that is innovative but feels somehow classic, simple but rich in details, textures and qualities. Pure talent.

Hi there. I wished to advise you that some parts of your website are tricky to comprehend for me, as I am color blind. I suffer from tritanopia, however there are more kinds of color blindness which will also have problems. I will read the largest part of the web site OK, and those parts I have difficulties with I can comprehend by using a special browser. Just the same, it'd be great if you would remember we color-blind types while undertaking your next web page revamp. Thanks.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
