„Being a designer or being an architect, it’s a continuum.”

Spanish by birth, and Italian by choice, Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain and studied architecture in Madrid before graduating from the Milan Politecnico in 1989. She learned her craft in Italy, and opened a studio in Milan in 2001, where she has developed a truly global enterprise.

The key words for her work are: rigor and emotion, innovation and mental comfort.
