Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo in Spain. After studying at the Facultad de Arquitetura de Madrid, she graduated from the Milan Polytechnic in 1989 with Achille Castiglioni and in 2001 opened her own studio. Being a Spanish and an Italian designer has undoubtedly influenced her work. She brings together the rigor of her training in Milan with a creative side that comes from her roots. She has completed several projects and collections for Molteni&C. Her diamond table won the Red Dot Award for Best Product in 2005.

- Product maintenance
MAINTENANCE OF WOODEN, GLOSSY LACQUERED AND GLASS PARTS
For everyday maintenance dust with a soft dry cloth. For greasy, oily marks(fingerprints) we advise cleaning the surface with alcohol diluted in water, drying immediately with a soft cloth. For glass, specific products readily available on the market can be used. Products containing acetone, bleach and solvents should be avoided, as should abrasive products, furniture wax and hard fibre cloths (linen and synthetics) which could ruin and/or scratch surfaces. All these operations should be carried out with great care, avoiding heavy pressure. Exposure to direct sunlight can alter the paint and wood colour. For glossy finishes, continued maintenance in time may cause scratching and a reduction in the shiny effect.
MAINTENANCE OF METAL PARTS
In order to maintain the aesthetic characteristics of these finishes over time and avoid rust, regular, methodical and meticulous cleaning is necessary. For everyday maintenance, dust with a soft dry cloth. For greasy oily marks (fingerprints) we advise cleaning the surfaces with normal liquid detergents for glass. Products containing solvents and/or alcohol and hard fibre cloths (linen and synthetics) should be avoided, as they could ruin and/or scratch surfaces.
MAINTENANCE OF MARBLE TOP
As regards normal maintenance, dust and dry residues, use a soft cloth. For stubborn dry dirt (dust which has penetrated into the porosity of the granite) it is advisable to use a close-knitted or a spongy cloth, slightly dampened with warm water and well wrung out. Clean by following the vein of the surface without applying too much pressure. As for both greasy and oily marks (fingerprints) it is recommended to treat the surfaces with a small sponge dampened with water and washing-up liquid. Afterwards go over the surfaces once again as described above. Products which contain solvents and/or methylated spirits as well as cloths with rigid fibres (linen and synthetic fibres) are to be avoided as these may ruin the varnish. Given the kind of treatment it is important to immediately remove stains following the above described procedures.
