Architect-designer. Omnipresent on the international design scene and a longstanding friend of Patrizia Moroso, Patricia Urquiola’s latest project “The Revolving Room”, is an installation that played host to five innovative textile collections that she designed for Kvadrat, which were presented at Moroso’s Milan showroom during the Salone Del Mobile.

Playing on emotions with a sensorial approach, Urquiola places tactile aesthetics and a palette of rich colours at the core of her creative process. Trevira velvet and XXL embroidered motif textiles hang on revolving panels, and Kvadrat Soft textiles are displayed on Philips own luminous interactive panels. According to Urquiola, today it’s essential to “find an expressive textile language that can be adapted to the professional market. Using story-based research into fabrics I try to translate the theme into a material by seeking new visual effects and a temporality that is more intrinsic to the space. There is a dialogue between textiles, and in that sense it is a similar material to ceramics or marble. I concentrate on the identity, living memory and its soft qualities.”

To discover in the new tlmag 18.
