Atrium Outdoor by Patricia Urquiola

Atrium Outdoor is an outdoor upholstery textile by Patricia Urquiola, which also can be used indoors. The textile has a plain base with a subtly vivid pattern. Unusually for a technical weatherproof textile, Atrium Outdoor is made with a highly durable specially developed Trevira CS yarn and stands out for its very soft hand.

Free from fluorocarbons, Atrium Outdoor is flame-retardant with an environmentally focused finish, which is water-repellent and fast-drying. The textile also provides resistance against chlorine, seawater and artificial weathering.

The palette, the result of extensive research into colour expression, comprises neutral yet distinctively characterful warm shades that are always vivid and never predictable. The colours includes a selection of rose and terracotta hues, as well as a scale of green nuances, and a signature bright yellow shade.

The inspiration for the design comes from Memory, a celebrated upholstery textile created by Patricia Urquiola in 2013. While Memory’s design is characterised by straight lines, Atrium Outdoor has a more spontaneous, homogenous pattern, which is reminiscent of scratches on wallpaper that manifest memories of the past.
