Patricia Urquiola / Bohemian / 2008 / by MOROSO 
Bohemian links the past to the present, function to material, detail to design, craftsmanship to industrial production, in the form of innovative objects. These concepts are in Patricia Urquiola's genes. She shares Moroso's design vision and her alliance with the firm has resulted in some of her best creations. In the Bohemian collection, Patricia turns her hand to the classics - classic shapes and manufacturing techniques - and reinterprets them with originality, introducing a modern, revolutionary new twist. Bohemian is not a simple ready-made, but a full-blown experiment. Capitonné work has been reinvented, brought up to date, applied with press-studs and used for new, almost liquid shapes which blend into the main frame. The upholstery is totally unique - there are layers of leathers, traditional and technical fabrics, Brasilian rugs, etc. Bohemian is a kind of luxury patchwork which imbues the product with a sophisticated, global-nomad, contemporary spirit. In her Bohemian collection - sofa, bergère, chaise longue, armchair and pouffe - Patricia Urquiola skilfully mixes sophisticated technologies with the quality and refinement of craftwork, pushing its potential towards new horizons. And this all comes naturally to Moroso, unostentatiously, leaving the designs to speak for themselves about their meaning, which is embodied in a meticulous study of details, in manufacturing techniques, in technologies.
