GENDER 570 WINGBACK CHAIR AND OTTOMAN BY PATRICIA URQUIOLA FOR CASSINA
Circa 2016, in leather and fabric
Item # 712PZA01Q
The Gender 570 wingback arm chair and accompanying pouf were designed by Patricia Urquiola for Cassina in 2016: an entirely unique perspective on what a chair can and should look like, the striking appearance is matched by a relentless comfort. Without any hard angles or sharp edges, the perfect depth of foam and softness of the leather and fabric pad are inordinately gentle to relax in. The backrest is designed rather uniquely to respond to pressure from the sitter by giving a recline of approximately 12° and returning automatically to its original position simply by use of flex and spring in the materials.
The ottoman is designed with leather footrest band to protect the surface from any damage. The structure of the chair seat and back frame is designed with tubular steel with belts. The padding is a variable-density CFC free polyurethane foam. Black painted steel in the base includes heavy stitched saddle leather sleeves to protect the floor and finish the feet beautifully.
A unique strikepoint in every way, this example has clearly seen only the most minimal use.
