Design by Patricia Urquiola, 2007.
Broad woven seating and a relaxed seat back make the Tropicalia Lounger an easy choice for reading nooks or conversation spaces. Paying meticulous attention to detail, the design envisages a tubular steel structure with complex geometrical shapes, embellished with a clever weft of threads that alternate solids and voids to a specific pattern. Offered with or without arms, classical Tan Leather cording compliments a range of four base finishes.

It's an extraordinary piece of furniture!
By: Diego R., Designer (New York, NY)
It's a beautiful piece. Designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso, it's a very sophisticated yet light and casual-chic look. It took a long time to get it though, almost 24 weeks (6 months) because they forgot to place the order initially. However, it was worth waiting for it, because it really is an extraordinary piece. It smells, we haven't figured it out yet what it is, but the leather cords smell very bad. Hopefully, (I expect that) it will go away with the time. After this experience, the following up of customer service has improved a lot and they have been doing an EXCELLENT JOB with everything I've ordered since then.

Moroso started from the end: it began by considering the end users, their lifestyles and their ways of using their living-rooms. A living room is a place you open to other people, in order to express your hospitality, but can also be a place of quiet and reflection.View other products from Moroso
