PATRICIA URQUIOLA AT LUMINAIRE
On February 3, coinciding with its 37th anniversary, Luminaire’s Coral Gables flagship welcomed esteemed designer Patricia Urquiola for an incredible event highlighting the company’s long partnership with B&B Italia. The day began with a press luncheon, at which Urquiola gave an effusive and incredibly engaging presentation to an intimate group of journalists and close friends of the company. Later, the evening kicked off with a lecture at the nearby Coral Gables Museum at which Urquiola spoke to a standing room-only crowd of nearly 300 people. Showing images ranging from her working sketches, to prototypes, studio shots and photographs of environmental installations in addition to personal snapshots of inspirational scenes of her child’s drawings and her travels, the talk provided a very rare opportunity to peek into the mind of Urquiola – a true master of contemporary design.
