In an industry dominated by male counterparts, Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola can hold court with the best of them after learning a bit of her career history, her design contribution, and her broad scope industrial association. From her early days as assistant lecturer with design icon Achille Castiglioni both at the Politecnico di Milano University and at the E.N.S.C.I. in Paris, to working for the new product development office of De Padova and with Vico Magistretti, to being head of the Lissoni Associati design group, working for Alessi, Antares-Flos, Artelano, Boffi, Cappellini, Cassina, Kartell and notably designing on her own for B&B Italia, Bosa, De Vecchi, Fasem, Kartell, Liv’it, MDF Italia, Molteni & C., Moroso and Tronconi … need I say more. Urquiola today calls Milan her home base. Her website is more of a contact portal rather than one that showcases product overview; hence the provision of the Architonic link.

Regretably due to hardware malfuntion i.e. a blown power board in the main computer''s LCD monitor, posting will lapse till hopefully no later than the beginning part of week 1/18. Apologies ...
