Lud’o Lounge Chair
With innovative lines and an ingenious construction, the cozy Lud’o Lounge chair by Patricia Urquiola makes room for the playful side in our nature. A change of clothes, in this armchair, becomes a fundamental concept. One can remove the entire padded upholstery that covers the shell and substitute it with a new one.
Equipped with a recycled plastic shell, made with a rotational mold, Lud’o Lounge sits atop a base that is available in several versions: a conical metal swivel base matte varnished in black; four solid ash wood legs (oak stained, wengé stained, or black stained), with four ash wood spokes (oak stained, wengé stained, or black stained). The quilted upholstery is available in a selection of the fabric and leathers in the collection.
Super soft and polyhedral, the Lud’o Lounge is completely recycled and recyclable. In this armchair, each element, from the base to the padding, expresses a new way to give materials added value.
The SOFT SIDE of Cappellini
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.
