GENDER

GENDER


The name of the Gender armchair derives from its changing identity based on chromatic and material combinations in an encounter between two formally independent shapes that make up its form: one is structural, flexible and enveloping, the other with a soft interior to more appropriately identify the seat. Designed by Patricia Urquiola, the Gender armchair is dressed in layers, with textures and colours that meet and contrast to create an adaptable lexicon in relation to its surrounding environment.

product details

Gender is an armchair, one of a kind. A combination of materials and colours with a wide range of uses: the soft padded interior converses with the rigid exterior, enhanced by a coloured leather edge that accentuates its sinuosity. The fabrics cling to the curves of the armchair and come in seven diff erent set colour combinations. The backrest responds to pressure by reclining about 12° and returning automatically to its original position. A pouf is also available in the same combinations, with leather footrest band to protect the surface from any damage. Two end sections in black saddle leather or shimmering leather, cover the feet of Gender to round things off.
