Having spent most of her career working in collaboration with other designers, it only makes sense that Patricia Urquiola's design philosophy revolves around creating environments that encourage positive feelings and gathering together. From furniture to lighting, she conceives every object she designs as part of a domestic landscape, rather than as an individual piece.
Born in northern Spain, Urquiola initially trained in architecture in Madrid, but has spent the majority of her educational and professional career as a product designer in Italy. She was trained under and worked with such renowned Italian designers as Achille Castiglioni
and Vico Magistretti. In the early 1990s, while designing furniture with Urquiola at the De Padova furniture company, Magistretti encouraged her to always aspire to the highest professional standards at a worldwide level.
Taking such advice to heart, it is to this level that Urquiola continues to aim. Working in harmony with the highest academic standards of design, she also takes into consideration the needs and desires of the public. Striking a balance between technical superiority and public taste, Patricia Urquiola designs reflect a slightly formal quality, but one that is also overlaid with a cozy domesticity.
In terms of product design, Urquiola is perhaps best known for her furniture designs for Moroso. She has also created various other lighting, furniture and jewelry designs for Agape, B&B, Alessi
, Driade, Foscarini, Kartell and Flos, just to name a few. Particularly exemplary of her highly imaginative, yet pragmatic style are the Caboche Lighting Collection by Patricia Urquiola for Foscarini (in collaboration with Eliana Gerotto) and the Chasen 2 Suspension by Patricia Urquiola for Flos.
