or Call to Order

The Crino­line chairs designed by Patri­cia Urquiola for B&B Italia exude comfort, romance, and femi­nin­ity. The chairs feature a broad, curved base harmo­niz­ing with the seat and back­rest. The intri­cate weaving tech­nique, coupled with modern tech­nol­ogy, creates a capti­vat­ing silhou­ette that pays homage to the elegant crino­lines of the 19th century. These chairs blend the charm of tradi­tional crafts­man­ship with contemporary design.

We also offer the Crino­line Lounge Chair to comple­ment the Crino­line chair, expand­ing the series and provid­ing further seating options that embody the same deli­cate allure and timeless appeal. 

As part of our quick-ship program, the Crino­line chair offers a conve­nient option for those seeking swift deliv­ery. Please refer to the spec sheet on the left-hand side for more infor­ma­tion or contact us at 800.886.0867.


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.
