Between Craft and Industry is the exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art containing the most important works by Patricia Urquiola, shedding light on her versatility in the creation of products, interiors and architectural spaces.
Curated by Donna Corbin, the Louis C. Madeira IV Associate Curator of European Decorative Art, the show reveals the internationally acclaimed designer’s ability to work with multiple materials in various sectors, from industrial production to custom interior design.
There are also pieces created for Cassina, Foscarini, Flos, Rosenthal, Haworth.
Biscuit Natural Genius, the innovative collection designed for Listone Giordano, has been selected as one of the most significant projects of Patricia Urquiola, an emblematic example of her design sensibilities. The traditional forms of wooden surfaces are reinterpreted in a rediscovery of historical decorative impact, an ideal connection between contemporary tastes and tradition, suggesting the motifs of the classic floors of Versaille.
The show also features Fishbone Inlay, the elegant facing in marble and onyx of the Earthquake 5.9 collection created for Budri.
