Patricia Urquiola, designer and architect, was born in Oviedo, Spain. She now lives and works in Milan where she runs Studio Urquiola. Her work is widely known to be playful and poetic, yet pragmatic and functional – a creative combination that is the magic behind her work. After studying architecture in Madrid, she moved to Milan, studying under Italian industrial design masters Achille Castiglioni and Vico Magistretti. Her book, Time to Make a Book, captures the fervid energy of Patricia’s life and work, as she explores the impact of her day-to-day life on her career and the importance reflection has in the creative process.

Patricia is celebrated for her forward-thinking and innovative product, interior, architectural and conceptual designs. The conversation with Patricia will also represent her collaboration with Haworth, which improves workplaces around the globe with award-winning furniture, interior architecture and technology solutions. Patricia has also created special showcases, exploring the balance of digital and analog to reflect the current state of work and life.

This event is free and open to the public. Reserve your seat today!
