This year’s edition is starting to show one of the biggest surprises through the history of the event, thanks to its incredible ideas. Featuring some of the best exhibitions yet, the stand out of this year edition is no questions asked the incredible setting by the worldwide designer, Patricia Urquiola. The designer went back to her root to present the best exhibition yet!
Madrid Design Festivalis an international event that wants to convert Madrid into the capital of design and elevate the city to a privileged position in the international arena. The festival is held through the end of February and encompasses all best design disciplines, from architecture to graphic design, tointerior design, all of them hybridizing into a contemporary and innovative format.
Although she launched her career in Milan, the designer Patricia Urquiola studied architecture in Madrid. Her incredible exhibition at MDF 20202 is called “Nature Morte Vivante” (Oviedo 1961) and is curated by Ana Dominguez Siemens. Thisunique design set shows products designed for industrial production, sometimes for artisanal production and very frequently at the intersection between the two.
From furniture to carpets, lamps, tableware, vases, fabrics, bathtubs, ceramics, and tiles, the main goal of this design set is to showcase some of the best products from different stages of Patricia Urquiola‘s career, who founded her own design studio in 2001. These carefully selected pieces show their way of dealing with different materials and techniques, with ingenuity, creativity, and a fresh look.
Patricia Urquiola‘s famous exhibition is organized in a non-chronological way, grouping the pieces around five “still lifes” (or areas) that are inspired by paintings such as Nature Morte Vivante by Salvador Dalí or Still Life Resuscitating, by Remedios Varo.
These five areas -or still lifes- at Patricia Urquiola‘s exhibition shows different axes: Transparent things brings together a collection of objects that have been important throughout his careers, like a connection between the past and the future. However the so-called empathic journeys, inspiration arises from the idea of both real and imaginary travel, that is, travel as a mental state, and the concept of Resistances shows projects that invite thinking.
