Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain, and studied architecture and design at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid before graduating from the Politecnico di Milano under the tutelage of Achille Castiglioni. She has worked with a number of well-known interior design and architecture businesses during her career.
Patricia Urquiola begins each project by empathizing with the customer who will eventually interact with her designs, a technique she learned from Achille Castiglioni, establishing the “fundamental element,” as he used to call it, the foundation of each project that always keeps her on track and accompanies her entire design process: thinking spaces or objects in relation to people.
Today we brought to you a list of 9 Astounding Restaurant Interiors signed by Patricia Urquiola.
Robust materials in neutral colors are articulated in a modern language, making the room both welcome and useful. Milanese architecture is a constant source of inspiration, with terracotta and granite walls and floors mixed with wood, textile fibers, and marble.
The interior decor of the Boujis Bar in Porto Cervo’s beach resort honors Sardinian arts and crafts. Throughout the space, it emphasizes original indigenous resources such as wood and ropes.
The materiality of the furnishings is highlighted by essential and geometric shapes, strict materials, and warm colors, all coupled with a modern language. There are also strong connections to Basque culture and geography: the wooden ceiling and elevated portions resemble the weaving of the caserios, the typical local buildings, as well as stones, pottery, and ropes.
Architectural aspects, materials, and textures reflect Ibiza and provide guests with an enhanced experience. From the inner wood to the pink tiles, from a metal background to a black and beige rope-woven cloth reminiscent of a traditional, local fabric. The furniture selection creates a dynamic atmosphere, with numerous items exhibited in a variety of colors and textures.
The notion of nest – its name in the local Raetho-Romanic language – inspired the design of the Igniv restaurant in Bad Ragaz. The compact surface, the main fireplace, and the low ceiling provide an immediate sense of coziness, which is enhanced by the mix and match of modern and classical materials and features such as wood, marble, and onyx.
Patricia Urquiola intended to recreate the welcoming ambiance of IGNIV by expressing the sense of a warm and personal cocoon where diners could dine in complete privacy. Nonetheless, the fine-dining establishment conveys nuances of Asian culture in a subtle and unpredictable manner.
This mood is emphasized by the architecture of the historic monastery that houses the restaurant. The low ceiling adds to the sense of well-being and contentment.
The interior decor of this old mansion sets the tone. Heavy velvet drapes and a big chandelier adorn the beautiful dining area. Turquoise blue, saffron yellow, and rust red are lush colors that compliment a light grey. The gleaming surfaces of the tables, on the other hand, grab the attention and provide the stage for IGNIV’s culinary creativity. Fine materials, such as velvet, brass, and marble, create a snug and elegant ambiance, while the organic shapes of the chairs and semicircular couches add to the cocoon-like sensation.
Copper, polished metal, grey wood, back-painted glass, and Rosa Portogallo marble are among the materials used in the business. With the same materials, the café becomes an intimate space: four distinct spaces are defined by uneven grid walls in copper-varnished metal.
