Over the past ten years, the Spanish-born, Milan-based Patricia Urquiola has emerged as the exhilarating new diva of contemporary design. In that short time, she has put her stamp on everything from furniture to rugs — for both indoors and out — for the likes of Valentino, Hermès and Knoll. Last year alone she debuted new lines of outdoor furniture for Moroso, B&B Italia and emu, added a plastic chair to the ever-edgy Kartell and designed a studio line of porcelain for Rosenthal.
