Elevate your outdoor living space with the stun­ning Canasta Seating collec­tion by Patri­cia Urquiola for B&B Italia. Drawing inspi­ra­tion from woven forms and patterns, Urquiola has created an excep­tional collec­tion that marries artistry with func­tion­al­ity.
The collec­tion’s signa­ture basket-like weave lends light to the forms. At the same time, the intri­cate uphol­stery and textile-like patterns on the cush­ions and ceramic table tops offer a figural quality that is both abstract and strik­ing. Expertly crafted in the Philip­pines using centuries-old tech­niques of three-dimen­sional weaving, the Canasta Seating collec­tion is a testa­ment to the art of tradi­tional crafts­man­ship.
Discover the beauty and versa­til­ity of Canasta Seating and elevate your outdoor space to the pinna­cle of luxury. Quick-ship options are avail­able. Contact us at 800.886.0867 to learn more.


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.
