or Call to Order

Floe Insel emerged from Patri­cia Urquiola’s desire to create an unfor­get­table, versa­tile modular system, inspired by icebergs, whose sculp­tural, mono­lithic bulk floats weight­lessly on water. A soft mass, made up of differ­ent geome­tries provided by a play of angles recalls form­less blocks of ice. A family of dynamic elements which – through its gener­ous volumes – evokes a clas­si­cal element, comfort, deriv­ing from in-depth research aimed at achiev­ing the best possi­ble balance between cushion thick­ness and soft­ness; the careful study of the ratio between elastic belts and the inner gaps in the foam gives the seat and back­rest cush­ions the optimum flex­i­bil­ity, without sacri­fic­ing their asymmetrical features.
