Gender, an ever-changing armchair for a new domestic landscape. 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.
