Patricia Urquiola

Patricia moved to Milan from Madrid to conclude her architecture studies at the Politecnico di Milano, where she graduated with Achille Castiglioni. 

In 2001 she opened her own studio.

Among her most famous and inspiring architectural works there is the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona, Das Stue Hotel in Berlino, the spa at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milano, Room Mate Giulia Milano and the Sereno Hotel in Como; showrooms and installations for Gianvito Rossi, Officine Panerai, H&M, Santoni and the concept for Pitti Immagine in Florence. She also designs for some of the most important Italian and international brands.

Some of her work is showcased in major art and design museums, such as the MoMA di New York, the Musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris, the Museum of Design in Munich, the Vitra Design Museum in Basel, the Design Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Stedelijk in Amsterdam.

Patricia is celebrated everywhere. She has received the Gold Medal of the Arts and the Order of Isabel the Catholic by His Majesty The King of Spain Juan Carlos I, “Designer of the Decade” from two different magazines in Germany, “Designer of the Year” from Wallpaper, AD Spain, Elle Décor International and Architektur und Wohnen Magazine.
