Origami Chaise

Well, Iím not sure how comfortable these would be to sit on, but they sure are pretty and will look fantastic in my imaginary spacious living room. They make me think of those intricately designed and executed Japanese origami art pieces.

Featured in the furniture show in Milan recently, these chaise longue titled Antibodi were designed by the red hot (and I donít just mean looking) Spanish Italian designer Patricia Urquiola, who worked for and was mentored by the great Achille Castiglioni. Like an organic flower, the chairs bloom from cells of petals sewn in triangular shapes. The petals feature reversible materials in felt and wool fabric, and wool fabric and leather, which create a supporting cover which is then fixed to a stainless steel metal frame.

Available at Moroso in Italy

These are the most original chais longues that have appeared for quite a long time. I also wondered how comfortable they are, but having in mind Urquiola's statement: "If my product is very contemporary, very communicative, but not useful, I will be an idiot", I do not expect any failure here.
