Design Patricia Urquiola, 2011
Beech or oak wood, lacquered MDF or Corian®
Made in Italy by Moroso

Klara is a series of tables & chairs designed for Moroso in 2011 by Patricia Urquiola. For Moroso it represents a new way of promoting the experience and skills of the Manzano manufacturing district, which for over a hundred years has been a model of Italian excellence in the industrial production of wooden seating. The design reinterprets the spirit of the early avant-garde movements of industrial design connected with the new developments that opened the way to the first examples of mass production, based on a close collaboration between the arts, industry and craftwork.

Born in Oviedo, Patricia Urquiola attended the Madrid Polytechnic and the Milan Polytechnic Universities where she graduated in 1989 with Achille Castiglioni as her supervisor of whom she was assistant at the Milan Polytechnic from 1990 to 1992. She has worked with many great talents and a plethora of companies worldwide. This brilliant Spanish architect is a phenomenon not to be lost sight of.

A design based on clean lines, a curved yet simple shape displaying a meticulously precise design language. Klara's shape and simplicity emphasize the wood's natural lightness. Klara tables are available in various sizes and feature either a waxed natural beech, waxed natural oak or lacquered beech frame. The tops are offered in MDF or Corian in your choice of colors. Please note that Corian tops have a lifted edge thus making the height either .5" or .75" taller.

Agostino Moroso, with his wife, Diana, founded the Moroso company in 1952 with an artisanal approach to making sofas, armchairs and furnishing accessories. Their iconic designs have propelled them within the upholstered furniture market, with help from a long list of well known designers: Ron Arad, Patricia Urquiola, Ross Lovegrove, Konstantin Grcic, Alfredo Häberli, Toshiyuki Kita, Marcel Wanders and others. Each piece maintains a noticeable Moroso style while representing other cultures as well. Its international outlook has landed Moroso into the MoMA in New York, Le Palais de Tokyo, the Grand Palais in Paris.
