‘Fishbone’ tables by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso
A herringbone motif in cast acrylic is the origin of the name for Patricia Urquiola’s new tables for Italian brand Moroso. ‘Fishbone’ features three distinct patterns; the malleable pallette of the cast acrylic gave Urquiola the freedom to create patterns that imitate natural materials such as horn, mother-of-pearl, marble and tortoise shell.

Industrious Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola has designed a new range of chairs for Andreu World that combine classic carpentry skills with resolutely modern elements.

'The Dwelling Lab' for Kvadrat and BM
Together with Giulio Ridolfi the Milan based designer Patricia Urquiola was assigned to create a conceptual installation for the Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat and the German carmaker BMW. The result of this fruitful collaboration are these huge cone-like structures that seem to be growing out of the car’s body.
The installation will be showcased during this year’s London Design Festival 22nd – 26th September 2010 at The Tramshed Event in the old disused electricity power station for the Shoreditch tram system. Beside ‘The Dwelling Lab’ there will be 25 exclusive international design brands exhibiting at this bold new venue.
