Fat-Sofa Outdoor Sofa
A play on volume and shape the Fat-Sofa Outdoor Sofa is designed by Patricia Urquiola and serves as an outdoor seating choice that brings comfort and a high-level of design. This outdoor sofa features a woven pattern created with a metal frame and Tortora colored twisted polyethylene fiber, and showcases the relationship of positive and negative space. The visual lightness of the back is contrasted by the volume of the upholstered base. The rounded silhouette of the seating creates an inviting and unique place to enjoy the outdoors.
