Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
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.
