An earlier post at 2Modern design blog
covered Patricia Urquiola's tile work which was delightful! Her focus
on creating industrial products with personality and her approach to
integrate layers of history into the memoriable patterns surely
trigger sensation and success.
Patricia Urquiola's advise for new designers is to find “a few cultural references and people who can give you guidance to develop your personality, try to defend your ideas and projects, create your own formula.”
She created a great formula for herself; her interiors are sensible, orginal and moving. The colors are plenty but they are relative and pleasing within the context of its surrounding.
The dynamics of colors in Urquiola's interiors can be explained by intuition and observation.
The corners are created with a sense of comfort which drives its energy from colors, lighting and patterns.
The outdoor furniture fits well into the nature's color scheme and also constitutes a lively drop within the earthy tones of the outdoor structure.
The colors of the pillows intensify each other with hues that complement and contrast in design. The lightness of colors gets affected by neighboring tones. The light source brightens the overall affect.
The colors and patterns in the living room are not used in a limited manner.
The color design develops around the amount, shape and placement of each design element in an interactional manner: The relativity makes the design pleasant and harmonious.
