This throwback from 2008 is the Tropicalia chair designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso.  First presented by Urquiola at Moroso's Little Wild Garden of Love in Milan, the chair is based on a tubular steel or PVC frame of her Antibodi chair but we think this is a vast improvement on the original.  Modifications have been made to the chair's body with the addition of wrapped cords made from either thermoplastic polymer threads, polyester cords or leather which manage to maintain the three-dimensional geometry of the original while adding structural and graphic elements.
