In 2001 Patricia Urquiola opened her own office in Milan, working on product design, architecture, installations and concept creation. Her work has won several international design awards.
In 2010 she designed, in collaboration with Giulio Ridolfo, The Dwelling Lab, a spectacular installation for Kvadrat and BMW for Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
One of her most recent projects was The Revolving Room, a stunning installation celebrating Patricia Urquiola’s first textile collection for Kvadrat, on her new and existing products for Moroso. The installation was rewarded with the Milano Design Award for the best installation shown by international design brands.
