A soft, enveloping collection that cocoons in curves
The new Pacific collection, designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso, provides an intimate seating experience that is like being wrapped in a protective and relaxing cocoon. With its rounded, oversized shapes, it evokes the relaxed atmosphere of the American West Coast, from which it takes its name.
Pacific is the continuation of a design process begun in 2010 with the iconic Redondo collection by Patricia Urquiola. “It’s the evolution of a collection that over recent years has been very successful not least for its use of innovative, luxurious finishes”, explained Patrizia Moroso, the company’s Art Director. “With Pacific, we focus more on the shape, restoring generous, curved lines.”
In the Pacific sofa, hard edges are banned while the soft shapes are enhanced with the use of “couture” details. The soft, woolly upholstery was chosen to give an extraordinarily tactile experience, with a choice of sophisticated boucle, plush wool or luxurious velvet.
