or Call to Order

The Fat Fat table stems from the designer’s explo­ration of a metal tray that she devel­oped for her Fat Fat-Lady Fat pouf tables devel­oped in 2002 that simi­larly featured the same inset tray as a surface. Urquiola here has objec­ti­fied the tray by placing it on a small scale recti­lin­ear tubular steel base. The result­ing exag­ger­ated size of the tray resem­bles a hover­ing disc. Fat Fat table is avail­able in four sizes – three of which esca­late in size allow­ing you to create some inter­est­ing stepped effects when they are used in tandem. The medium size table is avail­able in a taller height which makes it a perfect size as an end table and also features an engag­ing asym­met­ri­cal inte­rior cruci­form brace; the large size used inde­pen­dently also makes a great size round coffee table. Each Fat Fat table features a base in steel avail­able in white or black painted finish as well as a chromed finish. Each Fat Fat table tray top is composed of sheet steel avail­able in a black or white painted finish.

Patricia Urquiola

Spain (1961)

World-renowned designer Patricia Urquiola has already left a profound mark on the industry, and her prolific career is still catapulting ahead at full-speed. The Spanish designer’s eye for brilliant color and striking, sinuous forms turns her furniture, product, and interior designs into instant hits. Her expert understanding of composition, material, and form has garnered her commissions from the world’s most esteemed manufacturers, including Agape, Alessi, B&B Italia, Bisazza, Flos, Foscarini, Glas Italia, Kartell, Kvadrat, and Moroso. Pieces like her amorphous Bend sofa for B&B Italia reveal her talent for creating instantly eye-catching furniture that is also extremely inviting and human-centric.

Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain, and lives and works in Milan. After her schooling, she served as assistant professor to Achille Castiglioni and Eugenio Bettinelli at the Milan Polytechnic. During this time she also led the product development department at DePadova, where she designed alongside Vico Magistretti. She opened her own studio in 2001.

In 2015, she was named the art director of legendary Italian house Cassina, where she has worked to resurrect the brand’s expansive archive and transform its flagship stores to reflect the more than 90-year-old company’s modern vision. She also produces designs for a wide range of global clients.
