Flos Chasen Suspension Lamp Designed by:
- Patricia Urquiola , 2007
Patricia Urquiola studied architecture at Madrid Polytechnic and Milan Polytechnic, graduating in 1989 with Archille Castiglioni as her metor. She was then given the position of being an assistant lecturer to Castiglioni and Eugenio Bettinelli in Mlan and Paris. Her designs are unconventional, emphatic, and experimental, blending humanist sensibilities and technical expertise – qualities that also inform her work as an architect. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona is one of her many architectural projects.
She was responsible for the new product development office of DePadova and worked with Vico Magistretti as head of Lissoni Associati's design group. In 2001, she opened her own studio and started designing for some of the most important Italian and international companies around the world. She has since been awarded the Gold Medal of fine arts by the Spanish Government and been declared "Designer of the decade" in the German magazines "Home" and "Hauser".
