or Call to Order

Designed by Patri­cia Urquiola for B&B Italia, the Butter­fly Small Tables are designed to comple­ment the Butter­fly Sofa System, with an outline that seam­lessly follows the sofa’s lines. The family of tables includes round, square, and rectan­gu­lar low tables and a small table with a large weave pattern made of twisted poly­eth­yl­ene fibers in a Tortora color that wrap around the grey-painted aluminum frame. The surfaces of the tables are avail­able in two finishes: white Carrara marble venatino stat­u­a­r­i­etto” or thermo-treated ash wooden slats.


Patricia Urquiola


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.
