Fjord

Design Patricia Urquiola — 2002

 

In praise of the imperfect. Perfection in a piece of
shell. Fjord, a seating collection which Patricia Urquiola
designed for Moroso in 2002, turns an abstract concept
into a modern design object. Its allusive, incomplete
beauty has a natural value in its symbiosis with a broken
object smoothed by the waves and tossed on the beach.
Fjord displays an iconic shape split and regenerated
by time and water. Its light, fluid asymmetry exhibits a
traditional awareness of the relationship between form
and function in a constant pursuit of the ideal proportions.
Topstitching emphasises the seat shape to highlight,
in a continuous exchange of appearance and function,
its graceful, snug form. The Scandinavian influence –
starting with the collection’s name – is in the allusion
to Arne Jacobsen and the long cut featured on the seats
and stools, a metaphor for the typical inlets of the Nordic
coasts.
