Designer Patricia Urquiola perfectly utilizes texture, dramatic patterns, and exaggerated aesthetics to bring out both the abstract and functional aspects. The Biknit Chaise shows informality and elegance at once, interplay of comfort and sophistication. The wooden base of the chair is built of thermo-stabilized ash and is designed to endure the elements without losing its warm and woody appeal. Affixed and lying in contrast to the wooden buttress is a powder-coated steel tube. The visually exaggerated woven cords are covered in a special polyvinyl fabric created to withstand outdoor elements. The indoor version of this chair is covered in a rich wool fabric reminiscent of a cozy, woolen sweater suitable for the frigid winter. Combining comfort and style, such a piece is ideal for eclectic décor.
