Outdoor Collection Design Patricia Urquiola


With the Crinoline series Patricia Urquiola’s study of three dimensional textures helps infuse each piece with a supple feel and graceful design. These varied and bold materials alter between rustic charm and a dynamic modern sensibility. This poignant and playful exchange is a perfect reflection of the best that outdoor living has to offer. The dining chairs come with a metal base and poly weave back with a seat cushion.

Suzanne Caporael, Painter, New York

Suzanne’s work over the past 15 years has been characterized by an extensive and discrete series of paintings centering on phenomena of the physical world. Some of these have included depictions of the periodic table, tree rings, elements of pigments, estuaries, melting ice and plant stems.

Caporael investigates the physical world and transforms the intellectual and methodical data she has collected into sublime and resonate images. The genesis of her works is a complex and varied natural phenomenon, to which she brings her own particularly scientific approach; the implied grid system and multicolored amorphous forms suggest data gleaned from such varying sources as text, scientific data, and documentary photographs.
