The world-renowned designer Patricia Urquiola expresses her poetic sensibility in the Overlay Bowls for Louis Vuitton’s Les Petits Nomades collection. Each one is made of four leather sheets, overlapping as though in an intimate embrace. The color harmonies are enhanced with contrasting edge-dyeing for a contemporary visual vibration. These containers beautify the living space while making life easier, storing lap robes, cushions, clothes, toys, etc.
Spanish-born Patricia Urquiola has been living and working in Milan, Italy, since the mid-1980s. She graduated from the city’s Politecnico in 1989 and went on to work for a number of renowned architects and design companies, including De Padova, Alessi, Cappellini, Lissoni&Partners and Kartell. In 2001, she founded her own studio where she specialised in industrial product design, architecture, art direction and strategy consulting. She is part of the advisory board of the Politecnico of Milan university and the Triennale Milano Museum and she gives lectures in universities across the globe.
Her work is exhibited in many international art and design museums, including the MOMA in New York, the Decorative Arts Museum in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
