Bague's perforated, metal-net body is sheathed in silicon resin and it takes one 100-watt E27 bulb.
Don’t call it a Comb Back. The classic Windsor chair gets a multinational makeover via Patricia Urquiola. Gone are the spindled legs and gently curving wood, replaced with geometric accents in a thermoplastic technopolymer.
The Spanish-born, Milan-raised Urquiola is widely responsible for making contemporary outdoor furniture just as appealing as its high-design interior counterparts. This aluminum-framed minicottage with balau-wood slats is no exception: Urquiola descibes it as "the definative refuge in which to enjoy the outdoors."
Spanish-born designer Patricia Urquiola designed the Foliage sofa for Italian furniture brand Kartell.
The M.A.S.S.A.S. collection is compact and tidy, defined by the raised, tacking-like stitching along its seams. Upholstery fabric is bonded to wadding to create an ubersturdy covering for its polyurethane foam core.
Designed by Patricia Urquiola, and released by Kettal, the Maia line of outdoor furniture—which features intricate, handwoven, Alhambra-tiled plaiting—feels even more relaxed with this newly added footstool.
We've been enamored of Patricia Urquiola's multi-knit Mangas since they were introduced as a series of rugs in Milan last year. This "pouff" takes those colorful, chunky designs and stuffs them, making more to love for the unique designs.
The telephone table may have gone the way of the carrier pigeon, but the Naledi side table, patterned with a multihued selection of Botswanan telephone wires, offers a charmingly literal new take on the fading genre.
With its gentle curves, Ola (or “wave”) earns its name ably. The chair is made from rigid polyurethane upholstered with foam and a fixed cover of either stretched Lycra or leather.
Reminiscent of fish scales or a delicate lace skirt, this Patricia Urquiola–designed table is deceptively solid and, thankfully, able to support the weight of a breakfast spread or full dinner.
For the second season in a row, Patricia Urquiola designed one of our favorite Milan debuts that we're still ooohing and aaahing over. Last time it was the thick knits of Mangas, an über-tactile rug for Gan, and this year Silver Lake caught—and held—our attention. The angular easy chair exudes an effortless southern California cool reminiscent of the heyday of mid-century modernism.
Ditch the dowdy, humming, plug-in humidifier for a sultry ceramic model that sits on the radiator. Harness the heat to turn the water in the tray into moisture in the air.
When these conceptual cocoons appeared at last year’s Milan Furniture Fair, they seemed like Toltec-scaled artifacts hauled back from an exploratory voyage deep into the uncharted head-waters of Urquiola’s creative flow—elegantly minimal geodesic forms wrapped in an explosion of color, pattern, and texture. A year later, the remote tropical jungle outpost of Urquiola’s ingenuity remains unscathed.
You can put the sections of this piece in any direction and it works. Big, deep, low sofas are good for casual settings. For a living room that will be used for conversation, look for a shallow design with an 18-inch-tall back to create an intimate feel. Whatever the mood, dedicating your budget to anchor pieces that you’ll keep for a long time is important.”—Charles de Lisle
