Patricia Urquiola is among the most significant representatives of international contemporary design. Born in 1961 in Oviedo (Spain), she studied Architecture in Madrid and later in Milan under industrial designer Achille Castiglioni. Today the multi-award winning designer lives in Milan, where she has run her own studio for product design, architecture, installation and concept creation since 2001. The list of renowned Italian companies she has designed for reads like the “who is who” of design history: Agape, Alessi, B&B Italia, Cappellini and DePadova, Driade, Foscarini, Flos, Kartell and Moroso.
