or Call to Order

Absolute comfort, thanks to its gener­ous volumes and simple geome­tries, the Sengu sofa designed by Patri­cia Urquiola, is a perfect fit for the modern home. 

The struc­ture comprises a belted steel frame, elegantly finished with two wooden beams of either solid walnut or oak stained black. The sofa’s ergonom­ics are accen­tu­ated by the soft fold of the back­rest and armrest char­ac­ter­ized by exter­nal quilt­ing. This same detail is repeated on the back cush­ions making Sengu perfect for the center of any room. 

Thanks to the study carried out by Cassina LAB, a 100% recy­cled fiber, made of PET, mainly recov­ered from the sea, has been incor­po­rated in the padding of the cushions.

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.
