Volant Va Va Va Voom
The customization craze continues with Patricia Urquiola's latest for Moroso. Her 'Volant' range consists of a sofa, armchair, chair and stool whose upholstery length can be adjusted to suit the occasion. If that sounds a lot like getting ready for a night on the town, well, that's exactly what the designer envisioned.
The furniture can switch from "... an elegant evening dress," where the base is hidden to a shorter number that, "bares the legs and reveals the contours of the body..." Sounds a little racy for a sofa, but I love the colors and the visible edges of the fabric.
