The famous Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola has been working with the graphic designer Federico Pepe to create the Credenza collection of furniture, which includes cabinets, screens and a table designed for Milan boutique Spazio Pontaccio; and is being showed this week at Isaloni 2016.
Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain but is currently living in Italy. Her design furniture style and modern interior design are acknowledged for everybody.
Urquiola has added stained-glass panels to the front of the cabinets. All of the pieces feature geometric panels of blue, red and yellow glass. The use of this type of glass is emerging as one of the trends at this year’s Milan design week.
To create this design, the glass was cut by Italian artisans to match paper and card patterns. Narrow strips of metal are melted between the gaps that fuse the panels together once cooled and solidified. The panels are installed in simple furniture pieces that rest on thin cylindrical legs.
“Credenza is produced in Italy by artisans skilled in the manual technique of stained glass, generally used for the architecture and the decoration of churches.”
Urquiola is internationally known because of her amazing work in many projects, she has received prizes including Designer of the Year, Elle Decor International Design Awards, Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award, and the Design Prize Cologne.
This Credenza furniture collection is being presented at Isaloni 2016, that’s taking place from 12 to 17 April 2016. What do you think about this design inspirations?
