Nub Chair by Patricia Urquiola for Andreu World
Industrious Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola has designed a new range of chairs called Nub for Andreu World that combine classic carpentry skills with resolutely modern elements. In a post-modern manner, expressively undulating wooden-dowelling seat backs are teamed with highly rational sleigh-leg and pedestal bases to create forms that invite a second, curious look.
Urquiola says, “Nub is an emotive object, an element of my memory located in the context of my infancy, when I used to play with the bobbins that my grandmother used when she was making lace. These small wooden bars were playmates, which I have revised and redesigned in order to provide a base for the search for successive typologies. I always incorporate my domestic, private and past lives into my projects.”
It’s incredible how much this lady Urquiola gets up to. This must be the 5th post on new products by her to be launched in Milan 2011!
