GENDER ARMCHAIR: a story of contrasts


Designer Patricia Urquiola surprises us with an armchair that addresses a very relevant contemporary theme—gender—in a very inventive (and almost provocateur) way.

The famous architect and designer explains that the Gender armchair “is designed to change identity based on chromatic as well as its material combination — creating this product is about designing things that have a twist and, most importantly, are really alive and relevant in this time; in their time.”

Designed for Cassina, Gender stands between what is bold and sober, between what is strong and delicate, between what is masculine and feminine.

The armchair is elegant and enveloping, with a spacious seat and flexible tilting high backrest. The combination with a matching design footstool makes for a versatile and very comfortable seating.

It is available in 5 different combinations which confer a greater dynamic range and aesthetic interest to this armchair that you can find in our shop at Paço de Arcos.
