'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.

'Net Box' by Patricia Urquiola for Molteni

With her new family of cabinets, designed for Italian manufacturer Molteni, Patricia Urquiola has demonstrated her ability to apply expanded metal mesh, usually thought of as an industrial material, to furniture design in a way that avoids a rough, ready-made aesthetic. One beautiful detail is the wardrobe’s metal-mesh doors, which are fitted with extra storage on the sides.

'Macrosterias' by Patricia Urquiola for Budri

‘Macrosterias’ by Patricia Urquiola for Budri is an installation which represents the metamorphic use of marbles and stones of different origins – a female essence in chemical composition and colours.
The project arose from the observation of vegetal micro-organisms – micrasterias – whose forms mixed with graphic symbols create a new digital-biological entity.

‘Mangas’ (engl. Sleeves) is based on a patchwork of different wool knits, to create a collection of various typologies with different shapes, going from Manga corta (short sleeve) to Manga de campana (bell-shaped sleeve). The result is a series of eight very special carpets, full of nuances, due to their variety of textures and colours.
