The circular love bed came first, all soft curves, taut ‘springs’ (handwoven polypropylene and nylon rope bound around the frame to create bounce) and a sea of cushions, offering ample space to lounge – en masse. An optional circular canopy which repeats the rope motif, brings shade to the picture.
Referring to the design as ‘an island’, Urquiola has now developed an archipelago. An armchair has been added alongside a two-seater sofa and three combinable modules. They share the rope detailing and distinctive cushions. ‘The out-of-scale weave that accompanies the backrest of the seat also references the tension cords of trampolines,’ says the designer.
Most recently, the Trampoline sunbed has joined the family – a simple lozenge-shaped relative without the cord detailing, but with all the curves and comfort and a choice of ivory or taupe powder coated frame to complete the collection.
