Oviedo (ES), 1961

Born in Oviedo Spain, Urquiola studies at the School of Architecture of Madrid and Milan, where she graduates in 1989 with Achille Castiglioni. She becomes his assistant at courses at the Milan Polytechnic. In the early 1990s she works in the De Padova technical office, where she comes into contact with Vico Magistretti.







In 1996 she enters Piero Lissoni’s studio collaborating in the design sector.

Five years later, she opens her own studio in Milan and devotes herself to designing interiors, installations and objects. She designs products for Agape, Alessi, B&B, De Padova, Driade, Flos, Foscarini, Kartell, Molteni and Moroso. Her work not only reveals a decided feminine sensitivity, but also a profound knowledge of the Italian school of design.
