New 'Nub' chair collection by Patricia Urquiola for Andreu World

Industrious Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola has designed a new range of chairs for Andreu World that combine classic carpentry skills with resolutely modern elements. In a post-modern manner, expressively undulating wooden-dowelling seat backs are teamed with highly rational sleigh-leg and pedestal bases to create forms that invite a second, curious look.

Patricia Urquiola’s work sometimes divides opinion. See what you think.

Here’s what the designer herself has to say:

“Nub is an emotive object, an element of my memory located in the context of my infancy, when I used to play with the bobbins that my grandmother used when she was making lace. These small wooden bars were playmates, which I have revised and redesigned in order to provide a base for the search for successive typologies. I always incorporate my domestic, private and past lives into my projects.”
