Originally digitally drawn by Andrés Reisinger using a 3D design program, the Hortensia Armchair was labeled "the chair that could not be made." However, through a design partnership with Júlia Esqué and Dutch designer Moooi, the unique Hortensia Armchair is now available in physical form. The chair's characteristic floral look–its central selling point–is achieved by attaching 30,000 laser-cut petals to the steel and sculpted foam frame. These petals are modeled after the Hortensia flower and have a soft, luxurious feeling to them.
With its original look, the chair is a bold design statement that can act as a visual centerpiece and conversation starter. The Hortensia Armchair comes in two floral variants: light gray and dusty pink. Moooi also offers a non-floral variant that has over 300 fabric and color choices for full creative freedom.
