Patricia Urquiola‘s new cabinets feature geometric panels of blue, red and yellow glass, with diagonal and triangular patterns housed in semi-circular frames. She has used stained-glass panels in the front of these amazing cabinets, which made her the latest in a series of designers to use the material for contemporary furniture.
Urquiola worked with graphic designer Federico Pepe to create the Credenza capsule collection of furniture, which includes cabinets, screens and a low table designed for Milan boutique Spazio Pontaccio.
The use of this material in contemporary furniture started to became a key trend in 2016 during the Milan design week. During this week, not only Urquiola has presented this amazing cabinets but The Campana Brothers also have used the material to fill blob-shaped gaps in a wooden cabinet, and Glas Italia presented a range of colored glass furniture pieces.
Urquiola and Pepe’s cabinets design collection has a lot of references and inspirations but one of the most evident ones are the stained-glass windows that German artist Gerhard Richter installed at Cologne Cathedral in 2007.
Take a look into a different model of the same creative cabinet. The same concept but created vertically.
