Inspired by the Great Rift Valley, Patricia Urquiola uses geographic beauty as the form for this constructed design. The Rift Chair reflects the superimposed shapes of tectonic plates as they collide, diverge and overlap one another, bringing natural elements into the home.
The self-skinning polyurethane shell of the Rift Chair is available in White, Black, Sand, Zinc Yellow, Oxidored or Grass Green with a steel base in four color options: White, Black, Sand or Oxidored. An optional cushion is available in Light Grey, Off-White, Light Green, Dark Green or Red.
