B&B ItaliaTufty-Time (2005), Patricia Urquiola
Trained by Achille Castiglioni and Vico Magistretti, Patricia Urquiola (1961) is a famous Spanish furniture designer. Before graduating from the Milan Politecnico in 1989, she studied architecture in Madrid. In 2001, Urquiola opened her own design studio in Milan.
In 2005, Urquiola designed the Tufty-Time sofa, which was an instant modern classic and an emblem of good taste. Urquiola wanted to reinterpret the capitonné and Chesterfield style sofa of the 1960s and 70s. Manufactured by B&B Italia, the iconic Tufty-Time is a modular system with removable covers. The various elements can create traditional linear sofas, corner sofas, peninsula-shaped compositions and island elements allowing 360-degrees seating.
