or Call to Order

Remi­nis­cent of organs and flutes, Flauta outdoor wall sconces are char­ac­ter­ized by its verti­cal herring­bone pattern for the Flauta Spiga vari­a­tion as well as the verti­cal line etch­ings of the Flauta Riga vari­a­tion. Thanks to a small circu­lar reflec­tor that captures and rever­ber­ates the light emitted, Flauta has dual spot­lights. Flauta outdoor is suit­able for indoor envi­ron­ments as well, and the Flauta indoor version is also avail­able. The wall sconces come in three differ­ent heights, two surface textures, and a total of nine finishes.

Flauta outdoor is avail­able in six finishes: anthracite, black, dark brown, forest green, grey, and white.

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.
