Designed by Patricia Urquiola for furniture brand Moroso, the Clarissa Hood armchair and chair have faceted outer shells with seat backs designed to partially wrap around the sitter like the hood of garment.

The chairs are composed of a metal tubular frame with a thermoformed polyester fibre shell encasing a generously padded seat in a contrasting colour.

    I like Patricia Urquiola, but can a week pass without this designer producing a new chair?

    No wonder new graduates despair of ever finding work.

    Not among her best designs…

    I agree. I usually love her work but this one is really ugly. Maybe she's being a little too prolific?
