Gender Lounge Chair

by Patricia Urquiola
for  Cassina

or Call to Order

Gender lounge chair designed by Patri­cia Urquiola is one of a kind. A combi­na­tion of mate­ri­als and colors with a wide range of uses: the soft padded inte­rior converses with the rigid exte­rior, enhanced by a colored leather edge that accen­tu­ates its sinuosity.

The fabrics cling to the curves of the armchair and come in seven differ­ent set color combi­na­tions. The back­rest responds to pres­sure by reclin­ing about 12° and return­ing auto­mat­i­cally to its original position.

A pouf is also avail­able in the same combi­na­tions, with leather footrest band to protect the surface from any damage. Two end sections in black saddle leather or shim­mer­ing leather, cover the feet of Gender to round things off.

Patricia Urquiola

Spain (1961)

World-renowned designer Patricia Urquiola has already left a profound mark on the industry, and her prolific career is still catapulting ahead at full-speed. The Spanish designer’s eye for brilliant color and striking, sinuous forms turns her furniture, product, and interior designs into instant hits. Her expert understanding of composition, material, and form has garnered her commissions from the world’s most esteemed manufacturers, including Agape, Alessi, B&B Italia, Bisazza, Flos, Foscarini, Glas Italia, Kartell, Kvadrat, and Moroso. Pieces like her amorphous Bend sofa for B&B Italia reveal her talent for creating instantly eye-catching furniture that is also extremely inviting and human-centric.

Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain, and lives and works in Milan. After her schooling, she served as assistant professor to Achille Castiglioni and Eugenio Bettinelli at the Milan Polytechnic. During this time she also led the product development department at DePadova, where she designed alongside Vico Magistretti. She opened her own studio in 2001.

In 2015, she was named the art director of legendary Italian house Cassina, where she has worked to resurrect the brand’s expansive archive and transform its flagship stores to reflect the more than 90-year-old company’s modern vision. She also produces designs for a wide range of global clients.
