Born in Oviedo in 1961, Patricia Urquiola studied Architecture at the Madrid Polytechnic and at the Milan Polytechnic University where she graduated in 1989 with Achille Castiglioni as her supervisor for whom she acted as an assistant at the Milan Polytechnic from 1990 to 1992. From 1990 to 1996 she also acted as a cooperative with Vico Magistretti at the Product Development Office for De Padova. In 1996 she became a partner and designer at Studio Lissoni and Associates. However, in 2001 she opened her own studio where she looks after numerous designs, installations and architectural commissions. Her design work has also generated mass appeal in the creation of consumer products for Alessi, with her sleek modern lines and geometric inspirations. The Orloff bowl design is a perfect example of such characteristics. Created with the inspiration of an inverse geodetic dome, this bowl has been formed from a single sheet of stainless steel. It has been called a masterpiece and will continue to prevail as a contemporary work of art for the home table for years to come.

Just what I wanted for my dining room. Looks gorgeous. A bit expensive but very pleased with my purchase.
Jackie Gidaro from Montreal Quebec Canada
Well made. Gorgeous chandelier for our dining room. Search many months to get the perfect chandelier and always went back to this one.Very happy with my decision to buy it.
Sarah from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
The light fixture is one of the most beautiful I have come across. This absolutely needs to be professionally installed though. It takes awhile to put together because the little glass pieces need to be individually placed before putting the chandelier up. It was all worth it in the end. Gorgeous.

The Foscarini keynote is research, into forms and materials, as well as ideas. Established in 1981 in Venice, Foscarini started out by exploring the opportunities offered by Murano glass. The management assures brand identity and coherence by careful conservation of its Murano heritage, whilst being ever ready to consider new objectives and to exercise its rare capacity for talent scouting.
The company works with both established designers who've created new trends and with younger, emerging exponents of alternative styles and approaches. This makes for a highly original catalogue and one of the most varied in the sector. Over the years, the range of materials used has expanded to include satin-finished glass, polyethylene, wood and aluminium, as well as patented materials such as an exclusive textured glass-tissue and carbone fibre composite.
