Hortensia Armchair

by Andrés Reisinger & Júlia Esqué

April 2021
From its first stages as a rendering to the design as it is now, the origin and evolution of the Hortensia Armchair was based on a dream. A dream where in every home you could experience the softness of sitting in a blooming flower. Designers Andrés Reisinger and Júlia Esqué envisioned the Hortensia Armchair standing in living rooms, hotels, restaurants, any place all over the world.
Starting out as a 3D rendering, the Hortensia Armchair was first made into a limited edition. And with over 20.000 petals, producing the chair on a large scale was thought impossible. But together, Moooi, Júlia Esqué and Andrés Reisinger found a way. Together, they made the ‘impossible’ design possible and accessible to all.
“I really wanted to make this project happen with Moooi. I knew that with their collection having a fine line between art and design, there was no better place for the Hortensia Chair.”– Andrés Reisinger, Designer of the Hortensia Armchair
