or Call to Order

Patri­cia Urquiola inter­prets the happi­ness of outdoor life with a high- impact product inspired by the little tram­po­lines found in the gardens of homes in Green­land. Tram­po­line is a strik­ing and elegant love bed with a painted AISI 304 stain­less steel struc­ture and soft, playful forms, perfect for popu­lat­ing welcom­ing open air spaces, an island of relax­ation and comfort thanks to a set of three back­rest cush­ions and two types of addi­tional cush­ions, all of which in polyurethane foam cased in soft poly­ester wadding and covered with waterproof fabric.
It is avail­able in two versions, as a low sofa and a four-poster sofa, the latter to provide shade from the sun, and both stand out for the hand- woven polypropy­lene and nylon rope, mélange or multi­coloured, which wraps the base and back­rest, becom­ing its distinctive decoration.

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.
