Internationally famous designer Patricia Urquiola debuts first solo exhibition in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Museum of Art celebrates Patricia Urquiola's endless curiosity and energy with an exclusive exhibition


Patricia Urquiola just inaugurated her first solo exhibition, Patricia Urquiola: Between Craft and Industry, in the United States in Philadelphia on November 19th. 

The exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is about her versatility in creating products, interiors and architectures guided by an endless curiosity and energy. These are the aspects that made Urquiola one of the world’s most influential designers. She collaborated with tens of firms from all over the world, from Alessi to B&B Italia, Flos, Kartell, Moroso and more recently Haworth. Besides all this, she’s the Art Director at Cassina since 2015.

The silver thread through Urquiola’s production is her ability to combine artisanal manufacturing with modern design, be it for a Louis Vuitton bag turn into a stool, a plate for Rosenthal, a marble cover for Budri, a hotel on Lake Como or a bistrot in Milan.  


Among the many projects at the exhibition, the most recent one is Openest, an innovative system developed for Haworth’s offices in Michigan, representing her research on ergonomics and comfort. 

“Urquiola belongs to a new generation of designers with a humanistic approach towards her job” explains Donna Corbin, Louis C. Madeira IV’s associate curator at European Decorative Art. She particularly praised her ability to “explore the potential of craftsmanship through new technologies to achieve something familiar and comfortable”.
