Haworth designer, Patricia Urquiola, will be featured at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Make sure you stop in and see the stunning objects and furniture she designs for home and office. The exhibition runs through March 4, 2018.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art shares this description for the exhibition:


Internationally acclaimed designer Patricia Urquiola creates cool, innovative objects for the home and office. Perhaps more than any other designer working today, she has successfully fused the artisanal and the industrial.

Urquiola moves with ease between product and interior design and architectural commissions. She develops seductive shapes that are meant to be experienced, from her Nordic-inspired “Fjord” armchair and “Openest” lounge furnishings to stylish interiors for luxury hotels.

In this exhibition, explore a selection of her designs as well as her creative process from concept to final product. Discover how she uses personal sources of inspiration—a Japanese whisk, a broken seashell, the shape of antibodies—to imbue objects and environments with a soul.
