patricia urquiola designed the ‘fergana’ collection that combines ancient techniques of weaving from the uzbek people together with industrial processes from europe. the structure is made entirely of wood and is designed not as a classic sofa wall but as an ‘island’ that is used in the uzbek tradition.
