Patriciaurquiola.com "After clothes a person needs a chair, an armchair, a cup for everyday life," the author explains his approach to interior design. Eclecticism and tenderness, expressed in perfect geometry and complex color, is Patricia's style. In her work again appears glass - the most "inconvenient" of possible materials for the designer, and every year it acquires an increasingly unexpected form. In each project there lives a special spirit of creativity, where gentle colors, subtlety and play of reflections can compete in convenience, functionality and practicality with any of the "brutal" objects of our time. Let's talk about this in detail. Panerai Boutique in Miami. Here the central element is a chandelier. The pendant exhibit is made of rings and disks under a unique design. The boutique Santoni in Milan is "assembled" according to the principleOpenness and transparency with the addition of vintage furniture items. Patricia herself highlights the geometry of the shelves and racks, which are fixed on the legendary brass wall. And in Gianvito Rossi in New York, the oak floorLaid out "herringbone" - in the rhythm of the picture through the entire length of the room. The wealth of materials of the facility is onyx of pink and honey colors, tinted glass planes and smoky mirrors in combination with translucent textiles. Defining trends in spatial architecture, the designer fills them with objects for their development. So, for example, Patricia Urkeola develops glass interior compositions - tables and shelves with incredible overflows over the surface. Multicolored transparent elements are manually attached to each other and form an iridescent work of art. The collection of Shimmer Glas Italia makes you drawAttention: unusual and convenient, it was literally foreseen by Patricia as a stable trend of the last two years. It is especially interesting to hear how such an imperishable idea was born, because it is known that the author of the collection was skeptical about working with glass. To the questions of the editor-in-chief etk-fashion.com Oksana Kazhenko, Patricia answers simply: Patricia Urkeola: - Yes, it's glass. But at first the idea was not obvious to me. The thing is that I belong to the category of people who do not like working with glass as a material - it's uncomfortable for me. You see, I do not like the very idea of using glass or transparent plastic in private spaces. First, it is too ephemeral - this is a minus, in my opinion. And secondly, I am annoyed by tables, through which you can see the shoes of those seated. And now the joint collection of Patricia Urquiola for Glas Italia takes world fame. And even in such a seemingly cold and sharp material as glass, Patricia revives her inherent style - the warmth and brightness of colors combined with innovation. What is the technological secret of such a mystical collection? Patricia Urkeola: - Technologically, these objects are made of laminated glass, assembled into intersecting planes - they make the light flicker and create amazing color effects. If you think about it, there are not so many manufacturers in the world who would so bravely agree to implement such a collection. The Italians took it. So, the most interesting thing is how do Italians make the impossible possible? Patricia Urkeola: - Experts Glas Italia convinced me that glass can be made to be anything, including its natural shortcomings. It's very interesting to work with these people, because when they put unrealistic tasks, they do not say that this is impossible, but they leave to think about how to make your idea possible and even simple in execution. This is a real Italian approach, the approach of the masters of the Renaissance. So we came up with such subjects, the form and technology of manufacturing that would allow to preserve all the advantages of glass: lightness, grace, reflection and glare - but at the same time eliminate shortcomings ... The history with highlights and reflections continues. And Milan provides for its release a great place - the art gallery Spazio Pontaccio for the iSaloni 2016 exhibition.
