Patricia Urquiola interprets the joy of living in the open air of small private paradises with Trampoline, a love bed with a strong personality that becomes the hero of any outdoor space.
“During a trip to Greenland I noted these little trampolines outside the locals’ houses. This playful object inspired me to design Trampoline, a friendly haven to enjoy the outdoors in great comfort.”
The soft and playful curves of this relaxing island have been designed for large and welcoming spaces. Trampoline boasts an unbeatable sensation of comfort thanks to the set of three cushions for the backrest as well as two types of additional cushions making it impossible to not want to dive straight into this soft, inviting nest.
Born in Oviedo, Spain in 1961, Patricia Urquiola studied architecture at Polytechnic University of Madrid and Polytechnic University of Milan. She worked as a co-lecturer with Achille Castiglioni and Eugenio BEttinelli in Milan and Paris between 1990 and 1992.
