Nuez, an envolving and technological design

Envolving, suggestive, warm and technological at the same time. This is the Nuez chair. Designed by Patricia Urquiola, born from the idea of creating a seat that folds like a sheet of paper. The injected thermo-polymer shell is expressed as a flexible surface that embraces the body when sitting. The curves of the seat transmit softness and materiality.



Its undulating exterior texture features an exclusive band fabric created by Patricia Urquiola. This new chair offers a double texture: that of the carcass, formed by three-dimensional waves that give it movement, and that of the upholstery, which also involves a complex and studied manufacture, an authentic innovation. The development of Nuez presented the challenge of making two materials as diverse as thermopolymer and fabric establish a harmonious and rich dialogue.
