Design Patricia Urquiola, 2010
Beech wood, cane back
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. Its shape and simplicity emphasize the wood's natural lightness. Klara has a familiar, reassuring look. Its frame is an extremely precise, experimental design. Going against tradition, the armrests are not connected to the backrest and seem to float free. Klara does not like living in the dark. Wood wants sunlight. Its relaxing form requires space in order to be admired. Available in two versions: a beechwood frame with an upholstered backrest or with Vienna straw.

Klara rocking chair features a cane back and beech wood frame. Natural oak & beech options are offered with a natural cane back. All other finish options, the wood and cane back are finished in the same color.

Patricia Urquiola

Born in Oviedo, Patricia Urquiola attended the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Madrid, where she graduated in 1989 having completed a thesis with Achille Castiglioni. From 1990 to 1992, she was assistant lecturer on his courses. Between 1990 and 1996, she worked with Vico Magistretti for the new product development office of De Padova and signed the products: “Flower,” “Loom sofa,” “Chaise,” and “Chaise Longue.”
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 Haberli, 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.
