Log sofa by Patricia Urquiola for Artelano


Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola has designed a sofa with a chunky wooden frame for French design brand Artelano.

Called Log Sofa, the design features a cylindrical bar wrapped around three sides, over which a loop of fabric is fastened to form the backrest.

Here's more information from Artelano:


All the 'Log' collection needed to assure its popularity hands down was a sofa. And now it has got one with this new model by Patricia Urquiola for the french company Artelano: cushion seat for improved comfort plus back- and arm-rest cushions to confirm the wrap-around look.

Sewn details are distinctly chic with a choice of elegant fabrics borrowed from the menswear department. But the piece still retains the me-Tarzan character of the very first 'Log' armchair, with its structure in solid wood and rough-hewn stocky figure.

Dimensions 187 x 85x h 63cm
Structure in solid beech core wood worked & lathed
Finishes: natural grain satin varnish or black lacquer
All-over textile cover
Suggested retail price: from 4160 euros in white, natural grain finish

    I adore Particia Urquiola’s furniture.
    Every new sofa of her share the same language, yet it is unique.

    The detail is beautiful.

    clumsy, somehow. Like the pillows & the fabric though!

  • Very clean, beautiful and chic.

  • Beautiful, looks 50’s, but kinda too shallow. Should be deeper.

    Elegant and beautiful.
    I really like it.
    Urquiola always wonders us.

  • João Ferreira

    Altough the costumer pays the design/idea/project/materials/etc, this is so simple, that makes me wonder if it is possible to make this kind of products cheaper! I believe so!
