Gender Armchairs


Patricia Urquiola chair sketches

The name of the chairs Blending Genders came from the changing identity based on chromatic and material combinations. The chair is made up from masculine and femanine independent shapes and go together to create one form. This creates a sense of unity which is something which Patricia looks and aims for within her designs since opening her own studio in 2001. This sense of unity is something which runs through most of Patricia’s designs. I feel this is due to the fact she is a confident, fabulous designer   working in a male dominant field and works towards being seen as equal with those great male designers, like the ones she has worked with – Achille Castiglioni, Vico Magistretti and others.
