New tables: From material fetish to the Zen factor
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/11/2017
Be they short or long of leg, simply unique or extravagant: there’s no end to the variety of tables in Milan.
Patricia Urquiola's second design was inspired by rift valleys, hence the collection's name, RIFT. The range includes two sofas, Aden Sofa and Afar Rift, plus Rift Armchair and Rift Chair. Just like tectonic plates, which diverge, collide and overlap, creating several layers, the Rift sofas and chairs convey, in a highly unusual way, an effect of a sliding movement and asymmetric fusion.
