Antibodi's Beauty

This is the first of a weekly series of posts we will be editing for Mocoloco, focusing of, course, in Details. Posts will be published every monday at and later in the week here at Stay tuned!

From a simple circle of fabric Patricia Urquiola succeeds in creating a rich and ingenious object; an incredibly eclectic product capable of appearing feminine and colourful, or filled with cultural meanings, or severe and rational. 
It's the choice of materials that transforms Antibodi's personality; wool and felt of vivid or ton-sur-ton colours that provide a joyful mood, the mix of different patterns and textures that confer an ethnic, storytelling facet, the use of leather and optical patterns that give a masculine, quilted look. 


The fascinating aspect of Antibodi lays precisely in these contrasts, achieved thanks to the Spanish designer's exceptional ability to distill from simple materials and technologies highly expressive and intelligent products. Despite a rational approach to design her products never lack in poetry, she has the rare ability of extracting the maximum expression out of rather common materials and proven manufacturing processes. 

A simple circle made of fabric, sewn to other circles in a triangular configuration gives shape to a contrasting double face surface, which is then mounted over a simple stainless steel structure. The covers are removable so you can decide which mood best matches the need.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
