or Call to Order

Hero 2 is a rich uphol­stery textile designed by Patri­cia Urquiola for Kvadrat. The new iter­a­tion of Hero can be char­ac­ter­ized by its soft texture and excep­tional color rich­ness and comes in a sporty new palette compris­ing over 30 nuances.

Hero 2 exem­pli­fies Kvadrat’s commit­ment to Conscious Design Prin­ci­ples. It is primar­ily woven from wool, a renew­able resource, and is re-engi­neered to contain recy­cled nylon instead of virgin nylon. Conse­quently, it is suit­able for recycling.

The expan­sive new palette for Hero 2 show­cases Patri­cia Urquiola’s singu­lar approach to color design. It comprises a dynamic scale of subtle yet vibrant hues inspired by nature.


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.
