or Call to Order

The Hayama cabinet is char­ac­ter­ized by the same formal cut which plays on volume and subtrac­tion seen in a Haori, the tradi­tional Japan­ese jacket worn with a kimono. The legs, oblique in rela­tion to the main struc­ture, are the distinc­tive element of this simple and elegant side­board. Appar­ently minimal, its solid geomet­ric form is accen­tu­ated by thinned edges that lighten its appear­ance. Perfect for living and dining areas, Hayama has two doors and trans­par­ent glass shelves inside. Hayama is avail­able in polished lacquer in a wide choice of colors.

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.
