or Call to Order

Flauta indoor wall sconces mimic the elegant cylin­dri­cal shapes of organs and flutes. The strik­ing dual spot­lights in Flauta is aided by a small circu­lar reflec­tor that captures and rever­ber­ates the light emitted. The verti­cal surface etching in the body is char­ac­ter­ized by a sophis­ti­cated herring­bone pattern. The wall sconces come in an outdoor version, in three differ­ent heights, two surface textures, and a total of nine finishes.

The indoor Flauta wall sconce is avail­able in five finishes: anodized blue steel, anodized copper, anodized ruby red, black 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.
